The Town of Ajax fully supports the unanimous decision by the Lakeridge Health Board of Trustees and the Independent Expert Panel to protect the Whitby Site for a proposed new hospital in the Region of Durham.

We would like to commend the Panel for ensuring a fair process and securing a site that will accommodate the Region’s future health care needs.

This decision also ensures the continued preservation of the Carruthers Creek Headwaters which is critical to ensuring responsible development and environmental sustainability for Ajax and the surrounding area.
