About the Project

The Accelerated Build Pilot Program aims to deliver new long-term care homes years sooner than a traditional development project through the use of hospital-owned land, rapid procurement and modular construction.

As part of the program, a new long-term care home will be built at Lakeridge Health’s Ajax Pickering Hospital. The home will include up to 320 new long-term care spaces to help address capacity issues within Ontario’s health and long-term care system, while providing a modern, comfortable and safe place for seniors to call home.
