Lakeridge Health Moving to Become Temporary Long-Term Care Licence-Holder for Sunnycrest Nursing
Home in Whitby

Lakeridge Health will be expanding its ongoing role of supporting resident care and leading the management of Sunnycrest Nursing Home in Whitby and move toward becoming the temporary long-term care licence-holder for the residence.

On December 3, 2020, Lakeridge Health assumed temporary management of Sunnycrest Nursing Home through a Voluntary Management Contract, approved by the Ministry of Long-Term Care, during a COVID-19 outbreak.

Working in collaboration with Durham Region Public Health and other community partners, our team was able to get the COVID outbreak under control and put in place a series of processes and protocols to provide residents excellent care despite the difficult circumstances presented by the pandemic. The move towards becoming the temporary long-term care licence-holder for the residence will ensure this high standard of care continues.

“Lakeridge Health is proud to be stepping up to continue caring for residents and delivering high quality health care to those who need us most,” said Cynthia Davis, President and CEO of Lakeridge Health. “The health and well-being of Sunnycrest residents, staff and our community at large is at the core of our values and our vision of One System. Best Health.”

As the details of Lakeridge Health’s temporary operating licence for Sunnycrest are finalized, the hospital will continue to work closely with the Ministry and Sunnycrest’s current ownership to ensure a smooth transition that provides residents with ongoing high-quality care, and ensures staff are appropriately supported, now and in the future.

We will continue to keep families and staff informed of any updates on a timely basis.
