About Our Cause

At Launchpad we're dedicated to improving the health care experience in Durham Region and that means raising awareness and funds for our local hospital, Lakeridge Health (Oshawa and Whitby hospitals). 

To date, Launchpad has raised over $47,000 for important equipment needs at our hospital including the replacement of a parent chair and cardio-respiratory monitor in the paediatric department. 

Quick Facts about Lakeridge Health:

  • One of Ontario's largest community hospitals with 5 sites in Durham Region
  • Home to one of the top Cancer Center's in Ontario
  • The first hospital in Canada to have a full digital pathology program turning stressful wait times from 6 weeks to 4-6 days
  • The first community hospital in Canada to have a certified biobank allowing researchers from all over to access samples of tumours and biopsies
When you support your local hospital, you'll make an immediate difference for the 1,600 patients and families that walk through our doors each day. 

With the support of Lakeridge Health Foundation, Launchpad will raise funds raised to directly support new technology and innovations at the Oshawa and Whitby hospitals allowing for a better, faster and safer health care experience.
