Celebrating generosity in a tech-forward healthcare facility

Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital (CVH) is Canada’s first smart hospital, featuring innovative technology and medical devices that provide state-of-the-art healthcare to the surrounding communities of Vaughan, Ontario. The Mackenzie Health redevelopment team worked closely with Forge to bring the vision of a fully integrated donor recognition program for the hospital and exterior campus to celebrate those who made the impressive facility possible.

A multifaceted expression of gratitude

The goal of the donor recognition program was to ensure that every aspect worked seamlessly with the architecture and wayfinding program while providing donors with a sense of appreciation for their incredible generosity. The donor recognition walls collectively celebrate the impact of donors’ crucial contributions and inspire future givings, inform patients, visitors, and staff alike.

An inspired donor-focused experience

CVH’s commitment to providing innovative healthcare became a central theme that inspired the development of this large-scale donor program. From the integrated programmable LED plinths on the exterior to three unique digital donor walls on the interior and donor signage throughout the campus, this suite of applications creates a beautifully varied, yet cohesive expression of appreciation.

Celebrating the wonder and joy of new beginnings

At the entrance to the maternity ward, families can commemorate and celebrate the arrival of their newborns. This large-scale display presents an interactive sky-themed mobile with baby name plaques hanging from its alphabetically categorized plates. Families can make a small contribution to showcase a personalized baby announcement, including the name, date, weight and photo of the child, triggered by tapping on the name plaques or using the user interface’s search function.
