Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital
The Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital (Formerly Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital) was completed in 2020 and officially opened in February of 2021 as a system-wide support resource for Ontario's COVID-19 pandemic response capacity pressures caused by the pandemic. Once the health system's needs stabilized, Cortelluci Vaughan Hospital opened as originally planned as a full-service hospital.
As one of Canada’s fastest growing cities, Vaughan required additional access to high quality healthcare. The 11-story, 1,200,000-square-foot hospital doubled access to care in the community and is the first “smart” hospital in Canada. It features integrated technology that allows medical devices to speak to one another, facilitating a more streamlined, patient- focused delivery of healthcare services.
The terrazzo installed by Franklin Terrazzo Company can be seen in the public corridors and spaces of levels one and two as well as two monumental precast staircases.
The floor is comprised of 42,000 square feet of 9mm thick Epoxy Terrazzo with Moisture Mitigation and Full Coverage Crack Isolation Membrane. Encompassing this floor is 4,500 lineal feet of precast terrazzo base manufactured in Franklin Precast Shop. The staircases contain 102 pieces of 2” thick, one-piece tread and riser units, as well as landings.
All aggregates used to create the terrazzo work were Canadian products and sourced locally. We included 10% recycled glass to help Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital in their goal of achieving Silver LEED certification.
