Welcome to Hospice Vaughan

Mario and Nick Cortellucci Hospice Palliative Care Centre of Excellence

We are honoured to provide the Vaughan community with care and support to those affected by the challenges of life-limiting illness. With a holistic approach at the foundation of all we do, we support those in our care physically, psychologically, spiritually and emotionally through our 12-bed residence, community programs and home care.


On Sunday June 2nd, a beautiful thing happened. Over 500 hikers (that’s you!) chose to walk with family and friends, despite the pouring rain. For many, the walk was healing and the atmosphere of warmth was palpable. Your boundless love and generosity is an extraordinary example of true community spirit and we are truly blessed. We couldn’t have done this without you!

What is hospice care?

Hospice care is a compassionate approach to end-of-life support, focusing on enhancing the quality of life for individuals with life-limiting illnesses. It offers holistic care, managing physical symptoms and providing emotional, psychological, and spiritual support. At Hospice Vaughan, we value patients’ dignity and empower them to make choices about their care.

It is our goal to offer a dignified journey through the final stages of life, emphasizing comfort, peace, and meaningful moments for patients and their families and loved ones.

A hub for hospice palliative care

Our hospice palliative care programs help those facing life-limiting illness to live fully, while supporting their loved ones. Our palliative approach is focused holistically on physical, psychological, social and spiritual care to improve quality of life whether that is weeks, months or years.

It is not just for the last days or weeks of life, hospice palliative care is about having the best quality of life for however long life remains.

Our programs and services are provided to people of all ages, free of charge.
