Let's Talk

This is an exciting time for health care in Durham Region. In 2016, five hospitals, a residential treatment centre and more than a dozen community health care locations came together to create the new Lakeridge Health. Today, as one of the province’s largest community health systems and the acute care provider for the entire Durham Region, Lakeridge Health together with our community and partners has the opportunity to reimagine the future of acute care to ensure people have access to the services most needed by our community.

Opportunities to help shape Lakeridge Health’s future:

1. If you missed our telephone town hall on Wednesday, November 28 focused on building a stronger acute care system, an audio replay is available at this link. A summary of the Q&A will be available soon.

2. Fill out this survey to share your ideas, suggestions and input into how health services are provided across Durham Region for the next five years and beyond. The survey will explore the themes and ideas that emerged from the previous consultations conducted in the spring of this year. It is available until December 21 in English and French.

3. Share this information with your family, friends and neighbours. The more people who participate, the better! And stay in touch via our website, Facebook or Twitter, and email us any time at letstalk@lakeridgehealth.on.ca.

Thank you for your support as we embark on this tremendous journey together.

 About the telephone town hall

What is the telephone town hall?

The telephone town hall is a live discussion with experts and leaders held over the telephone with thousands of residents of Durham Region. It is on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. and will last about 45 minutes. Participants can ask questions, answer polls or just listen in.

Why is Lakeridge Health doing this?

This is an opportunity to reimagine the future of acute health care for everyone in our community. It is a chance for people to share ideas, suggestions and feedback about how our growing communities can continue to have excellent health care, close to home. This feedback will inform Lakeridge Health’s future.

Who will be on the call?

Hosted by Jerry Archer of KX96, the telephone town hall will feature Lakeridge Health President and CEO Matthew Anderson and Chief of Staff Dr. Tony Stone. Participants will include thousands of randomly-selected Durham Region households, plus anyone who registers in advance.
