Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Anatolia Tile and Stone pledged $1 million to Mackenzie Health Foundation’s $250-million “Exceptional Care Belongs Here” campaign to help build and equip the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital and advance surgery services at Mackenzie Health. Last year, Mackenzie Health performed close to 9,200 surgeries for patients who needed care for a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions.

“Anatolia Tile and Stone is proud to support our community in the construction of the Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital, the first hospital to be built in York Region in over 30 years,” said Bekir Elmaagacli, managing director of Anatolia Tile and Stone. “We’re proud to give back to the community which we call home, because exceptional care belongs here. We are pleased to make this financial donation which will help to ensure that the highest quality of health care is available in our backyard, when it is needed most for all of our families. We hope that this charitable gift made on behalf of the entire Anatolia Tile and Stone team makes a meaningful impact and inspires others in bringing exceptional healthcare to our community.”

In recognition of this transformative gift, the Surgical Waiting Room at the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will be named in honor of Anatolia Tile and Stone. Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will be Canada’s first “smart” hospital with integrated technology, systems and medical devices all communicating directly to one another to maximize information exchange and enhance the patient experience. It will also be the first net new hospital to open its doors in York Region in over 30 years.

Construction of the new hospital--a 1.2 million-sq-ft state-of-the-heart health care facility--began in fall 2016 and is making significant progress toward the scheduled completion in 2020.
