Improving Health Care for Brampton Area Patients
Peel Memorial Centre Reaches Important Milestone
Families and patients in Brampton will soon have access to a new, state-of-the-art hospital close to home as the province today marked substantial completion of the Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness.
Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, was joined by Vic Dhillon, MPP for Brampton West, in Brampton today to celebrate this important milestone. The facility has reached substantial completion, meaning the building is ready to be occupied. Services will start moving into the new hospital over the next few months before it fully opens its doors to the community in April 2017.
The Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness will offer traditional and alternative health care services to help people stay healthy, including:
- An urgent care centre for those with non-life threatening illnesses or injuries
- A day surgery facility for procedures such as cataract and arthroscopic surgery
- Outpatient clinics for children, youth, expectant and new mothers, and newborns
- Clinics on chronic disease prevention and management
- Mental health and addictions programs
- Seniors' wellness programs
- Day clinics for dialysis for patients with kidney disease
- Diagnostic imaging services such as radiography, mammography, ultrasound and CT scans.
Investing in new hospitals is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
- Ontario is investing up to $451 million in the approximately 350,000-square-foot Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness to serve residents of Brampton and surrounding communities.
- Construction on the Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness began in June 2014.
- Services at the new centre will complement those at the other two hospitals sites of the William Osler Health System, Brampton Civic and Etobicoke General. When Peel Memorial opens, the focus will be on outpatient care, surgeries that do not require an overnight stay and the Urgent Care Centre.
- This is one of about 35 major hospital projects across the province under construction or in various stages of planning.
“Today marks a significant milestone in the construction of this important health centre for the Brampton community. Once completed, Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness will provide patients with specialized care in a modern facility. We are commited to ensuring all Ontarians have access to high quality, innovative health care services close to home.”
Dr. Eric Hoskins
“Substantial Completion Milestone of the Peel Memorial Centre means we are now closer to completing this project. Once the new state-of-the-art Peel Memorial outpatient hospital opens in a few months from now, the community can look forward to a new kind of health care facility: one that not only treats illness and injuries, but also helps people stay well.”
“This is an exciting day for the people of Brampton and the surrounding area. The new Peel Memorial is giving us a chance to lead the way in the province, serving as a state-of-the-art outpatient hospital that will meet the increasing health care needs of our families, while changing our health system by focusing on health, wellness and prevention of illness and chronic disease.”
“Infrastructure Ontario is proud to have worked with William Osler Health System and Plenary Health to deliver this great project to the residents of the Peel community.”
