Lakeridge Health is Looking for Your Input

Posted on Tuesday January 30, 2018

Please complete a brief survey to inform the future of Durham Region’s acute care system

Durham Region -- As Lakeridge Health evolves as a five-hospital regional system of acute care, it must ensure it can meet the health care needs of the communities it serves today and into the future. To help guide how and where health care services will be delivered over the next 20 years and beyond, Lakeridge Health is developing a Master Plan, which is a roadmap for the future of care delivery in Durham Region.

Significant consultation is underway to collect insights from Lakeridge Health’s patients, their families, residents of Durham Region, as well as staff, partners and others who are interested in the future of the regional system of acute care. To complement this process, today, an online survey is being released to collect the perspectives of the following people:

  1. Survey for patients, families and residents of Durham region
  2. Survey for health service providers and partners of Lakeridge Health
  3. Survey for Lakeridge Health Staff and Team Members

Please spend 10-15 minutes to complete this survey before March 11, 2018, and kindly send the links to the survey to those in your network. The results of the survey will be analyzed and included in the master planning process.
