At our Markham and Uxbridge sites, we encourage you as a patient, family member or visitor to connect with a spiritual caregiver to support you during your hospital stay. We are here for you. We’re always willing to meet to discuss whatever is on your mind.

If you would like support from a member of your faith community, the Spiritual and Religious Care Department can help facilitate this for you. A meditation room is also available at our Markham site for personal spiritual reflection and religious rituals. Quiet rooms are available for the same purposes at the Uxbridge site.
