During the COVID-19 pandemic, Markham Stouffville Hospital continues to provide high quality care to our community. One way in which this is accomplished is by helping our patients seek the right care, in the right place, and at the right time.

In an effort to increase access to care for paediatric patients with Non-Emergent concerns, the Paediatric Ambulatory Clinic - Extended (PACE) has added two-hours each day of care for patients aged three months up to until their 18th birthday. This service is intended to compliment the care of your primary care physician and provide access to virtual or in-person care in the late afternoon/early evening.

The Paediatric Ambulatory Clinic - Extended is available by appointment only, to provide non-COVID-19, non- emergency care to paediatric patients.

Referrals accepted but not required.
