The Ontario government has announced that the $451 million Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness (2016 Top100 Project #84) has reached substantial completion.
Construction on the Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness began in June 2014. Services will now 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.
“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,” said Vanita Varma, chair of William Osler Health System board of directors.
