The Shoulder Centre Opening (Oct 6, 16)
On October 6, 2016, The Shoulder Centre was officially opened in the presence of donors, staff, doctors & community supporters at Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering hospital.

Over 45,000 people a year in the Central East LHIN alone visit their family doctor due to shoulder pain. And it's not uncommon for specialists to hear from their patients that they are in pain and discomfort for 12-18 months before they’ve finally been referred to them.

With the creation of The Shoulder Centre, wait times are now about 2-4 weeks, and the patients have access to a team of specialists in shoulder care.

Thank you to all the donors for investing in The Shoulder Centre, especially

- the Town of Ajax
- Dr. Romas Stas
- the Mayors’ Charity Golf Classic
- the Auxiliary to Rouge Valley Ajax and Pickering hospital,
- the 2015 & 2016 Family Day at the Races
- Search Engine People who created the Centre's website, and
- Michael Claener

Thanks to their generosity, this new space was built and state-of-the-art equipment added to the surgical suite.

Also, a special thank you to all the supporters in the community, especially the members of The Shoulder Centre Cabinet who helped shape the vision for the Centre.
