WHEN IT CAN’T WAIT: Peel Memorial’s Urgent Care Centre is a game-changing new health care option!
It’s Friday evening, your family doctor’s office is closed and:
• Your toddler is running a fever…
• Your elderly mother slipped on ice and you think she may have fractured her wrist…
• You’ve broken out in an itchy rash…
• You suspect your husband’s sudden, severe toe pain may signal an episode of gout…
For times like these, when it’s not an emergency, but it really can’t wait, the citizens of Brampton
will soon have a new, close-to-home health care option – the Urgent Care Centre (UCC) at Osler’s
new Peel Memorial Opening on February 8, 2017. The UCC will be staffed by a highly-skilled
health care team and equipped with high-tech diagnostics. It will also be patient-friendly with
convenient hours open from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., 365 days of the year.
Peel Memorial’s new Urgent Care Centre (UCC) will be staffed by emergency-trained physicians
and staff and equipped with high-tech diagnostics, including x-ray, CT, and laboratories. The
UCC will serve patients of all ages with non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries that don’t require
immediate surgery or an overnight hospital stay.
