Markham Stouffville Hospital is a Vivastation on York Region's Viva bus rapid transit system, north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Vivastation was scheduled to open on July 1, 2007, but it opened on January 27, 2008 instead. The station is located on the south side of Church Street in front of the Markham site of Markham Stouffville Hospital near Country Glen Road, in Markham, Ontario. This will provide convenient access to the hospital as well as Markham Stouffville Medical Centre and Participation House. [ [ Media Advisory: Viva purple extended eastward to Markham Stouffville Hospital] ] The Vivastation currently operates only on the Viva Purple but is expected to serve the Viva Green route in the future.

YRT had been working on bringing Viva rapid transit service to the Markham Stouffville Hospital in advance of the opening of Cornell terminal. "Staff has identified a location for a curb side rapid transit stop and platform on the south side of Church Street west of Bur Oak." [ [ Report No.6 of the Rapid Transit Public/Private Partnership Steering Committee on September 27, 2007] ]

During the construction of the new Cornell Terminal, the Vivastation will serve as the temporary eastern terminus of the two Viva routes to connect with local bus routes. After construction is finished, the Markham Stouffville Hospital Vivastation will close.
