Visiting our Uxbridge site


In January of 2004, Markham Stouffville Hospital welcomed Uxbridge Cottage Hospital as a partner site.

The Uxbridge site of the Markham Stouffville Hospital is a 20 bed community hospital with 41 physicians, 149 staff and 150 volunteers.   

Visiting the Uxbridge site

General visiting hours are 11 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. During this time you are welcome to come and provide well wishes to the patient. 

For more information, please speak with a member of the health care team on the unit that is caring for your family member or friend.

Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) has family presence policy that enables 24/7 access for partners in care, allowing them to spend more time with their loved ones. Between the hours of 10 p.m. – 6 a.m., daily, MSH will observe quiet time to help patients get the rest they need.

 Tips for visiting the hospital
  • Help keep all patients safe from infections by using the hand sanitizer in the hospital.
  • Do not visit a patient if you feel unwell or have symptoms, such as cough, fever, runny nice, sore throat, diarrhea, vomiting, or a new rash.
  • You may need to shorten your visits if the patient is tired and needs to rest. To keep the hospital a restful environment for patients, we have a quiet time from 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. daily.
  • You are encouraged to spend time with a patient, however, you may be asked at times for privacy and care reasons to leave the room.
  • Children who require supervision must be with an adult at all times. The adult cannot be the patient.
  • Do not use any perfumes or scent before you come to the hospital. MSH is a scent free environment.
  • Markham Stouffville Hospital is a 100% smoke-free.
  • Latex can cause a severe allergic reaction. Latex balloons are not allowed in the hospital. Mylar balloons are acceptable.
  • Respect members of the patient’s health care team. We will not allow abusive or disruptive behaviours.
