Your Hospital Lakeridge Health Bowmanville
Through the support of caring and generous community, the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation is proud to play a role in ensuring quality healthcare at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville.
Lakeridge Health is a network of four hospitals; Lakeridge Health Bowmanville, Lakeridge Health Oshawa, Lakeridge Health Port Perry and Lakeridge Health Whitby.
“Lakeridge Health is one of Ontario’s largest community hospitals, serving people across Durham Region and beyond. We are part of our community and it shows in the care we provide – because the people coming through our doors are our neighbours, family and friends.
With four hospital sites and three Emergency Rooms, we serve a diverse population. Our dedicated team of health care professionals give their all every day to keep improving the quality of care delivered, drive down wait times, and improve results.
With more than 4,500 doctors, nurses and other health care professionals on staff and over 1,000 amazing volunteers, Lakeridge Health is developing a reputation as a quality leader and innovator.”
Building For The Future
We know that as the population of Durham Region grows and changes, the health care needs of families here will change too. As the leading community hospital in Durham Region, we need to make sure we're ready so that we can keep providing the safe, high quality health care you deserve.
Durham Region is growing with new families choosing to move to the area, and our population is also aging as baby boomers hit retirement and choose to make Durham Region their home. Over the next ten years, the population of Durham Region is expected to grow by about 120,000 people, or just under 20%. At the same time, the seniors' population - those aged 65 and over - is expected to grow by over 60%.
We know that seniors need access to more health care, and that all of our families need access to urgent care, an ER, medical specialists and surgeries.
Lakeridge Health’s plan for the Bowmanville Site will make sure we have enough room for a growing and aging population with the right laboratory and pharmacy space to support the hospital, as well as teaching and research facilities. The plan includes:
> A new ER in Bowmanville that will be built to serve a rapidly growing population;
> New state-of-the-art operating rooms in Bowmanville and Oshawa;
> New senior-friendly patient rooms that are built to help infection control; and
> New space for our tests and scans, laboratory and pharmacy that supports new technology to improve safety, patient privacy and help infection control.
