Access To Healthcare
Over the last two decades, there have been significant investments into the healthcare services in Pickering as the population rates increase annually.
In late 2022, the Jerry Coughlan Health and Wellness Centre will open to the public. The center will join with Lakeridge Health and the owners of the Ajax-Pickering hospital, to provide additional outpatient and physician services to support this growing town.
Lakeridge Health provides premium healthcare across the Durham Region. However, to Pickering, healthcare is more complex than essential medical services. Pickering boasts additional services to help families, the mentally ill, and the vulnerable.
The Assertive Community Treatment Team is a unique service dedicated to mental health issues where treatment, rehabilitation, and support are available. For community support, the Carea Community Health Centre offers a wide variety of free programs available to all.
Together, all four of these healthcare services provide Pickering with the ultimate support to continue evolving into the best place to live in Ontario.
