Rehabilitation (Inpatient & Outpatient):

Inpatient rehabilitation services are offered for stroke patients at all three hospitals in York region through the integrated stroke units described above, and through a mixed rehabilitation unit at Southlake Regional Health Centre.

Some patients may be suitable to attend a Cardiovascular Rehabilitation Program at various locations across our district.  A physician/nurse practitioner referral is necessary to access these programs.

Stroke Prevention Clinic:

Mackenzie Health is the leader for Stroke Prevention Clinics affiliated with the Central LHINs Stroke Prevention Strategy. These clinics are located at Mackenzie Health Richmond Hill Hospital, Southlake Regional Health Centre, Markham Stouffville Hospital, Humber River Hospital, and North York General Hospital. Through this strategy, there are also links made to Cardiovascular Rehabilitation clinics across the district.

These Stroke Prevention Clinic are for people who have had signs and symptoms of a stroke that if untreated can lead to a stroke. It is also meant for those who have experienced a stroke and require ongoing care to prevent a second stroke.


Upon discharge from the hospitals in York region, every effort is made to provide a seamless transition into the community through comprehensive discharge planning. All eligible patients will be referred to the appropriate Stroke Prevention Clinic for follow-up and, if indicated, will initiate a referral to Cardiovascular Rehabilitation. Referrals are initiated for those patients requiring out-patient rehabilitation and /or other community services in collaboration with patients and families.

As a District Stroke Centre, Mackenzie Health supports and informs the planning of community services that address current gaps in stroke care across York Region and Central LHIN.
