We are proud to offer many amenities and comfortable settings for your family while you receive your care at Markham Stouffville Hospital. We offer a surgical family waiting room located in the link lobby on the second level of building B, where your surgical journey begins.

The surgical family waiting room offers comfortable couch and chair seating, television, free Wi-Fi, a telephone, and a quiet room for families who prefer or require some quiet time during their wait.

Please make yourself comfortable as you wait for your family member. You are not required to stay in the waiting rooms while your family member is in surgery. We offer many things to do while you wait.
