Posted on Tuesday November 27, 2018

Public survey and telephone town hall are part of Lakeridge Health’s ongoing conversation with community members

Durham Region – In the latest round of community consultations to gather information, which will inform the future of acute care, people who live and work in Durham Region are invited to provide ideas, suggestions and input to shape the future of Lakeridge Health.

The information builds on 5,000 points of feedback provided earlier this year, and is part of Lakeridge Health’s multi-year planning process focused on strengthening the acute health care system for Durham Region, and shaping delivery of services and hospital and other health facilities required to serve the community over the next 5, 10, 20 years and beyond. 

Live telephone town hall on November 28 at 7:00 p.m.
People are invited to join a live telephone town hall focused on building a stronger acute health care system on Wednesday, November 28 from 7:00 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. with Lakeridge Health President and CEO Matthew Anderson and Chief of Staff Dr. Tony Stone. The telephone event will be hosted by Jerry Archer of KX96 Radio. A randomly-selected list of 10,000 households will receive telephone calls inviting them to participate in the call. Interested residents can secure their place in advance by calling 905-721-7792 or emailing letstalk@lakeridgehealth.on.ca.

Public survey available until December 12
Durham residents have until December 12, 2018 to complete a confidential online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LHStrategicPlan20192024 (English) and https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/LHPlanStrategique20192024 (French). The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and includes questions about Lakeridge Health’s strengths, opportunities and insights into how the community accesses health care, building on the previous consultations Lakeridge Health consulted in the spring of this year. 

“Durham Region is one of the fastest-growing areas of Ontario, so it is especially important that the future of the acute care system is informed and influenced by the diverse communities we serve,” said Anderson. “Over the past year, the community has provided amazing input and it is now time to establish which priorities are the most important as we build for the future.”
