CLARINGTON, ONT. – The Bowmanville Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce Delpark Homes and Rescon Financial Corporation have generously donated $250,000 to the We Care, We Can campaign in support of the redevelopment and expansion of the Lakeridge Health Bowmanville Hospital.

Over the course of a number of years, and world pandemic, the costs of the redevelopment and expansion are estimated at $736M with a community fundraising goal of $110M. Once completed, the expansion and redevelopment will feature a 178 bed capacity meeting the community’s growing needs, new expansion of the notorious Regional Eye Centre, semi-professional suites, new emergency department to accommodate the demand, establish a new Ambulatory Care Centre and a nine-station Hemodialysis Centre.
