MARKHAM, ON, Oct. 24, 2018 /CNW/ - On October 30, Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) will host a celebration and unveiling event in honour of the seven-figure donation made by Mr. Shakir Rehmatullah, President & Founder of Flato Developments Inc.
This monumental gift will support extraordinary patient care by funding the acquisition of priority medical equipment, innovative technology and emerging hospital needs. In honour and recognition of this transformational gift, the hospital is proud to name and announce – The Shakir Rehmatullah Cancer Clinic.
MSH's oncology program includes a breast health centre, chemotherapy clinic, colon health services, clinical trials and radiation consultative services. MSH has been experiencing a 12 per cent increase in new oncology consults within recent years, reflecting Markham's status as the third-fastest growing community in Ontario, and patients' desire to be treated closer to home.
Both Mr. Rehmatullah and his company are long-time MSH supporters having generously contributed towards the most recent capital expansion of the hospital and numerous fundraising events. Mr. Rehmatullah often gives anonymously and has asked MSH to hold the amount of his gift in confidence.
