Family Surgical Waiting Areas

Family Surgical Waiting Areas

We are proud to offer many amenities and comfortable settings for your family while you receive your care. We offer a surgical family waiting room located in the link lobby on the second level of building B, where your surgical journey begins.

The surgical family waiting room offers comfortable couch and chair seating, television, free Wi-Fi, a telephone and a quiet room for families who prefer or require some quiet time during their wait.

Both of our inpatient surgery units offer family waiting rooms which offer comfortable seating, television, free Wi-Fi, a telephone, ice and water machine, private washroom and bright surroundings.

Please make yourself comfortable as you wait for your family member to be escorted to our inpatient accommodation.

You are not required to stay in the waiting rooms while your family member is in surgery. Markham Stouffville Hospital offers many things to do while you wait for your family member in surgery.
