Strategic Plan

Reimagine the Future of Health Care in Durham Region

As one of Ontario’s largest community health systems serving one of fastest growing areas of the province, Lakeridge Health is reimaging the future of health care in Durham Region.

Supported by a talented team of more than 7,700 physicians, nurses, health care professionals and volunteers across 16 locations, Lakeridge Health is working with partners to create an integrated health system that supports people to achieve their best health.

Our 2019-2024 Strategic Plan was developed through collaboration with our dedicated team, our community, health care providers, partners, patients and families.

Over a full year of intensive and inclusive consultation – one of the largest in our history – we received over 17,500 points of input and feedback that challenged us to think differently about how to create a future-ready health system for Durham Region.

Along with our essential role as a regional provider of high quality acute care, within five years, Lakeridge Health’s goal is to become a leading health system focused on improving the overall health and wellness of the people in our region.

Through a single system of care, focused on achieving best health, we can ensure our local health system is sustainable for generations to come.
