Lakeridge Health Port Perry is a hospital located in Port Perry, Ontario. The hospital currently services the townships of Scugog, Brock and Uxbridge in Durham Region.
The hospital was founded as the private Community Memorial Hospital Port Perry, which became public in 1946. Community Memorial moved twice due to population growth, once in 1953 and again in 1969 to its current location. In April 1997, under the Common Sense Revolution, the hospital was amalgamated with Uxbridge Cottage Hospital to form North Durham Health Services (NDHS).
In 1998 the hospital, along with Memorial Hospital Bowmanville, Oshawa General Hospital and Whitby General Hospital, were placed under the administration of the Lakeridge Health Corporation. The hospital was renamed, and Uxbridge Cottage was placed under the jurisdiction of the Markham-Stouffville Hospital Corporation.
The hospital currently has 180 staff members and 20 physicians, with a 24/7 emergency room, acute care, continuing care, and surgery.

“Publicity in women is detestable. Anonymity runs in their blood. The desire to be veiled still possesses them. They are not even now as concerned about the health of their fame as men are, and, speaking generally, will pass a tombstone or a signpost without feeling an irresistible desire to cut their names on it.”
—Virginia Woolf (18821941)
