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.

Surgeries and Other Procedures

Update on Procedures and Services

As of June 29, 2021, following provincial directives and guided by our surge capacity plans, Lakeridge Health is resuming all elective, non-urgent and non-emergency services, including non-urgent/non-emergency surgeries.

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

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.
