The Urgent Care Center (UCC) at Peel Memorial Center in Brampton will reopen on Monday, March 21 to treat people with non-emergency medical conditions.
UCC has been closed on-site since January due to the large number of patients requiring emergency medical attention, primarily those with COVID-19 Omicron infections.
Conditions requiring urgent care are usually those that can also be treated by family doctors, such as minor burns, cuts, earaches and fever, but also more serious conditions such as asthma, eye damage, infections, allergic reactions or broken bones.
Monday will see the daily opening hours of 8 am to 9 pm, but there may be plans to extend these hours.
Operating with Brampton Civic Hospital as William Osler Health System, Peel Memorial is slated for a complete makeover that will make it a fully operational hospital within the next few years.
Brampton has been one of the hardest hit areas in the country by the pandemic, which has led to an ever-evolving change in the way services are delivered.
Osler officials are optimistic that the drop in COVID numbers will see services return to normal levels.
