Brampton’s Peel Memorial Centre set to resume treatment for non-emergencies


Published March 18, 2022 at 3:26 pm


The Urgent Care Centre (UCC) at Brampton’s Peel Memorial Centre will open again on Monday (March 21) to treat people with non-emergency medical conditions.

The UCC has been closed at the location since January due to the high volume of patients in need of emergency medical care, mostly those with COVID-19 Omicron infections.

Conditions that fall under urgent care are typically ones that can also be treated by family doctors such as minor burns, cuts, earaches, and fevers but also more serious conditions such as asthma, eye injuries, infections, allergic reactions or broken bones.

Monday will see the daily hours of operation from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. but there may be plans to extend those hours.

Operating along with Brampton Civic Hospital as the William Osler Health System, Peel Memorial is slated for a complete makeover that will turn it into a full operating hospital over the next several years.

Brampton has been one of the hardest hit areas in the country by the pandemic which has prompted an ever-evolving shift in how services are delivered.

Osler officials are optimistic that declining COVID numbers will see services return to normal levels.
