It is an exciting time of growth and transformation in Durham Region.

In 1991, the population of Clarington was just over 48,000. Today, Clarington is home to nearly 98,000 residents, and that number will continue to rise.

As the region’s population grows, the demand for health care services continues to rise. To meet this demand, Lakeridge Health is embarking on a master planning and consultation process with the province, health care providers, community stakeholders and citizens.

The Plan

The Bowmanville Hospital Foundation has been working collaboratively with Lakeridge Health and cannot wait to unveil the Hospital’s Master Plan this spring. Lakeridge Health’s plan for the Bowmanville site will ensure there is enough room for a growing and aging population.  We are currently at Stage 1 in the planning process.

There are so many ways to support the Redevelopment and Expansion of Bowmanville Hospital.

On Wednesday, April 17, 2019, the Bowmanville Hospital Foundation hosted a special Campaign Presentation & Celebration at the Garnet B. Rickard Recreation Complex where they announced a new Campaign Cabinet, Campaign Logo and an incredible $5-million gift from the Municipality of Clarington.

Listen to Frank Cerisano, Chief Executive Officer of Bowmanville Hospital Foundation, Kirk Kemp, Campaign Cabinet Chair and President of Algoma Orchards Ltd., and Mayor Adrian Foster, Municipality of Clarington discuss the announcement.
