The Ontario government is increasing beds at Hospice Vaughan by two effective December 19th, bringing the total number of hospice beds to 12. This expansion improves access to hospice palliative care closer to home for Vaughan residents.

“Our government is providing the right care in the right place. This investment will allow people dignity and comfort with appropriate, compassionate, end of life care in their community where they can be surrounded by their loved ones.” said the Honourable Michael A. Tibollo Associate Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, MPP Vaughan-Woodbridge.

“Hospice Vaughan is excited to expand our services to meet the growing need for hospice palliative care in Vaughan,” said Louie Chiaino, Board Chair, Hospice Vaughan. “We are truly grateful for the Ontario government’s financial support as it assists us in our journey to provide excellent compassionate hospice care at no charge to families in our community.”


Since 1995, the caring staff and volunteers of Hospice Vaughan have supported individuals and their families, as they journey through a life-limiting illness. In 2021, the new Hospice Vaughan – Mario & Nick Cortellucci Hospice Palliative Care Center of Excellence opened. It includes a hospice residence that provides a peaceful homelike environment for individuals and their families experiencing a life-limiting illness. In addition, the Hospice offers a range of community programs, including grief and bereavement support.
