Screening when Entering
For those able to visit within the visitor protocols, we are screening at all entrances of Lakeridge Health hospitals to ensure everyone entering is well and free of illness. This includes all of the Lakeridge Health team. Anyone who is unwell will not be allowed to enter the hospital as ultimately this protects everyone.

Surgeries and Other Procedures
Though we have always maintained emergency surgery, and resumed priority cancer and non-cancer surgeries, we have also been busy planning to resume some elective surgeries. We started with some elective cases the week of June 12. Continued ramp up must be done carefully over the next several months.  We will increase the number of elective surgeries as fast as we can safely do it. However, if cases of COVID-19 begin to rise in the region and in our hospitals, we may be forced to reduce surgeries once again.

Our highly skilled and compassionate health care team is here to support you and your family every step of the way on your surgical journey.

For adults and children, we offer a full range of emergency and elective surgery at our hospital sites in Ajax Pickering, Bowmanville, Oshawa and Port Perry. 

Areas of Specialty

Clinics

We also offer a variety of outpatient surgical clinics. These are for smaller, less invasive surgeries where a patient comes in and is home by the end of the day.
