Mackenzie Health Foundation is grateful to donors who funded the refurbishment of a family lounge for the Palliative Care unit at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital. This enhancement will have an ever-lasting impact on end-of-life-care for our patients and families. The lounge offers a calm and serene space for families to relax, shower and prepare a meal, ultimately giving them the ability to remain close to their loved ones in their final days. Donors were invited to an appreciation celebration March 29 to see first-hand the impact of their generosity.
