COVID-19 Related Service Changes

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.

Temporary Surgery-related Updates due to COVID-19

As of April 16, 2021, following provincial directives and guided by our surge capacity plans, Lakeridge Health is temporarily curtailing all non-urgent and non-emergency services, including non-urgent/non-emergency surgeries.

In doing so, we are protecting our ability to provide urgent and emergency care. Emergency surgeries will continue, as well as prioritized time-sensitive surgeries, such as cancer surgeries. We know this is disruptive for many people. We are assessing our capacity needs daily and are hopeful we can resume these services soon.

If you have further questions about your particular situation, please connect with your care provider.

Please continue to watch this page for updates.

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


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.
