 $3 million to support planning for expanded cancer care services at Brampton Civic Hospital.

“Building the next phase of Peel Memorial and expanding cancer care services will increase hospital capacity in Brampton, and will elevate Osler’s long-standing tradition of exceptional health care. This is excellent news for the community.” The transformation of Peel Memorial will include the construction of a new tower for inpatient beds and the expansion of the existing Urgent Care Centre to 24/7 operations later this year, setting the stage for a second full Emergency Department in Brampton.

Today’s announcement is also an important step forward for cancer care and enables Osler to continue planning expansion of its cancer care program in order to meet the needs of the fast-growing community. This will bring more services, including radiation treatment that is currently not available in Brampton, closer to home for the community.

Osler is profoundly grateful to the Ontario Government, City of Brampton, Osler Foundation, donors, and the community for their continued support as it works to increase hospital and health care capacity to benefit people across the region for years to come.
