Urgent Care Centre at Peel Memorial Centre in Brampton reopening next week

The Urgent Care Centre (UCC) at Peel Memorial Centre in Brampton is reopening to increase access to health care for residents with non-life-threatening conditions as of Monday (December 6).

Initially, the UCC will be operating from 1 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., and it will resume regular hours—8 a.m. to 9 p.m.—in 2022.

The UCC has been closed since 2020, in order for Osler to redirect resources to the areas most in need during the pandemic.

However, according to Dr. Naveed Mohammad, president and CEO of William Osler Health System, the decision to reopen the UCC was made due to the fact COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and ICU admissions are now manageable.

Further, before the end of 2022, the UCC will begin operating 24 hours per day every day.

“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 Wednesday (December 1). “These are conditions such as fevers, coughs and colds, sprains, broken bones, allergic reactions, asthma attacks, cuts, and minor burns.”

Moreover, the UCC’s virtual urgent care will remain open as a convenient alternative to visiting the emergency department.
