The Urgent Care Centre (UCC) at Peel Memorial Centre is officially open again.

As of 1 p.m. on Monday (December 6), the UCC has reopened to treat residents with non-life-threatening conditions.

For the remainder of the year, the UCC’s hours of operation will be from 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and it will resume regular hours (8 a.m. to 9 p.m.) in 2022.

Prior to Monday, the UCC was forced to close due to the pandemic.

However, according to Dr. Naveed Mohammad, president and CEO of William Osler Health System, with COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and ICU admissions now much more manageable due to the rollout of the vaccine, the UCC has been cleared to reopen.

Further, in addition to expanding its hours in 2022, the UCC will also begin operating 24 hours per day every day before the end of the year.

“The urgent care clinic at Peel Memorial will have emergency-trained physicians and staff ready to assess and treat patients with non-life-threatening injuries or illnesses that cannot wait to see a family doctor,” Dr. Mohammad said in a press conference on December 1. “These are conditions such as fevers, coughs and colds, sprains, broken bones, allergic reactions, asthma attacks, cuts, and minor burns.”
