The anchor of our vast, state-of-the-art learning environment will be the Berwick Family Auditorium. A network of classrooms and training rooms will cascade from the auditorium to foster collaboration in clinical practice, education and innovation and promote patient and family-centred care.

Modal Content

A high-tech, multi-purpose space capable of seating up to 400 in one large or up to three smaller rooms, the Berwick Family Auditorium — named in recognition of a local King-based family who has made a significant leadership gift— will be an ideal venue for hospital-wide and community presentations, conferences and events. The auditorium could also serve as a mass treatment space in the event of a community-wide emergency.

Mrs. Mavis Berwick, and her twin daughters, Diane and Denise, made their first gift in honour of their husband and father seven years ago.

As longtime former King Township residents, when the need arose, the family had always turned to Mackenzie Health – then known as York Central Hospital – but Mrs. Berwick and her daughters were particularly grateful for the exceptional care provided to Robert Berwick before his death. The Berwick Family Auditorium, a well-used and integral space for gatherings at Mackenzie Health, marks the family’s legacy of generosity.
