Lakeridge Health Foundation - Will Power

Lakeridge Health Foundation



Lakeridge Health Foundation supports health care in Durham Region by funding innovative technology, vital medical equipment, critical renovations, education and research at our Oshawa and Whitby Hospitals. This includes the R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre.

Support from donors like you is essential to meet our community’s growing health care needs. Government funding only covers basic care.  By investing in advanced technologies and resources, we will have what it takes to provide exceptional health care now and equip our Hospitals for the Durham Region of tomorrow.

Our Impact

  • 205,000 visits to the Emergency Room
  • 124,000 patient visits to the R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre
