Children's Health

At Oak Valley Health's Markham Stouffville Hospital, your children’s health is our priority. We know having sick children is very stressful, and we will do whatever it takes to put your mind at ease. We offer services for newborn babies right on up to the teen years, and include clinics for newborn issues, diabetes, asthma, mental health, child life, child development, inpatient units, and surgery. We also have an ambulatory clinic which takes referrals from local physicians and the Emergency Department, to address your child’s health when a paediatrician consult is required.

Kids Health Alliance

We are always striving to enhance the care we provide to our families. This is why Markham Stouffville Hospital became the first community hospital to join Kids Health Alliance (KHA), which was founded in June 2017 by The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario – Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre. This partnership allows Markham Stouffville Hospital to benefit from the expertise of these renowned paediatric centres and give children timely care in their community where it’s easier for families to visit them.
