Ajax-Pickering Hospital Sign Goes Up

Mental Health Beds Restored


December 9, 2016

“I want to applaud MPP Joe Dickson, whom I have been working closely with on the Ajax-Pickering hospital for a long time.  His leadership has resulted in a plan and a way forward for the hospital in Ajax-Pickering that serves that community as well as the broader west Durham area.  His leadership has resulted in exceptional improvements and strengthening of the plan that was provided to me earlier this year.  So, I have to applaud his hard work.  He has worked so consistently, and it has actually resulted, I believe, in delivering a great benefit to his local community, one that I intend on following through with.”

-Honourable Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long Term Care (Hansard – Nov. 23)

“I have worked very closely with Minister Hoskins for quite a long period of time to come up with an effective plan to move our Ajax-Pickering hospital forward in serving Ajax and Pickering and the broader West Durham Region.  The improvements coming to the Ajax-Pickering hospital are a result of being heard by our Minister of Health.  I would like to thank the Minister, Doctor Hoskins for listening to the concerns of our families and for taking steps to ensure that the plan reflected our community’s voice.  I look forward to working closely with members of my communities as we continue to reshape health care in West Durham to improve access to high-quality care for all of our residents.” 

-Joe Dickson, MPP Ajax-Pickering

“On behalf of the residents of my constituency of Pickering-Scarborough East, I would like to congratulate and thank my colleague, MPP Joe Dickson, for his hard work on behalf of our community.  His tireless efforts, led to the addition of seats on the board, restoration of 20 mental health beds and keeping the identity of the Ajax-Pickering Hospital for the current and future residents.  Thank you Joe!  We will continue to work together to advocate for strong health care in our communities.”

-Tracy MacCharles, MPP Pickering-Scarborough East

“I am happy to join my colleagues this morning for this much anticipated announcement. This was a challenging road and I am very impressed by the work Minister Hoskins and MPP Dickson did to come up with a local solution that will provide the best outcome for patients. With our growing population in Durham Region, it was clear that our government needed to give special attention to our needs and I commend the Minister for his willingness to do so. “

-Granville Anderson, MPP Durham
