Durham Days of Giving – Day 24
Thank you for supporting the Durham Days of Giving!
Welcome to Day 24 and today’s charity is the Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation.
The Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation strives to help save lives, restore health and provide compassionate care by raising funds that directly benefit patients at Ajax Pickering Hospital.
Who We Are:
Opened in 1954, the Ajax and Pickering General Hospital has a rich history of providing excellent health care to Ajax, Pickering and west Durham residents for over six decades.
The Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation was established in 1994 as a parallel foundation to benefit the Ajax and Pickering General Hospital. When the hospital was amalgamated in 1998 with the Scarborough Centenary Hospital the fundraising activities were operated through the Rouge Valley Health System Foundation.
On December 1, 2016, the Ajax Pickering Hospital Foundation returned to the foreground to work with the Durham community to help save lives, restore health and provide compassionate care, by raising funds that directly benefit patients at Ajax Pickering Hospital.
The Ajax Pickering Hospital is one of the five sites that make up Lakeridge Health, that serves people across Durham Region and beyond.
Our patients rely on the many services provided at Lakeridge Health, including a leading regional cancer centre, diabetes management program, dialysis department, and mental health services.
Alongside our Foundations, Lakeridge Health is striving to provide the very best experience for you and your family, close to home. Your donations will help fund new, important equipment, capital needs, educational opportunities and research initiatives in your own community.
We are grateful for your support. Thank you for giving back to your local hospital.
