To Mayor Patrick Brown, City Council and Residents of Brampton:
Brampton City Council has made a significant commitment to the future of health care in
Brampton, for which we are tremendously grateful. On behalf of the Boards of Directors of
William Osler Health System and William Oster Health System Foundation, we want to
recognize and thank Mayor Patrick Brown, Members of Brampton City Council and our
incredible community for making this milestone moment a reality.
Council’s recent decision to invest $62.5 million – half of the much-needed municipal
contribution to bring to life the new Peel Memorial Hospital and a proposed Cancer Care
Centre – is a critical step in supporting health care in our community.
It’s no secret that Brampton’s local
local health system continues to experience substantial
pressures. With the continued support of the City of Brampton and its residents, we are
confident that together we can – and will – build the hospital system this community needs and
As you know, Osier’s exciting redevelopment plans include adding a new six-to-seven storey
tient tower to the existing Peel Memorial, with 250 beds to start and space to add up to
another 100. The current site is already home to diagne
cal dialysis, mental health,
and many more essential outpatient services, as well as our recently-reopened Urgent Care
Centre, which will expand to a 24/7 service next year,
The new Peel Memorial Hospital, when complete, will address the need for more specialized
care for patients requiring longer hospital stays before they can safely return home, and will
alleviate capacity pressures at Brampton Civic Hospital. Once the new Peel Memorial patient
tower opens, we will have the resources and beds needed to open the second 24/7 Emerge
Department for Brampton, and complete Peel Memorial as Brampton’s second hospital.
The proposed Cancer Care Centre, to be located on the grounds of Brampton Civic Hospital,
will bring radiation therapy and the full spectrum of cancer services under one roof. These
significant projects will be a huge boost to our hospital system, and will take us well into the
future as we continue our efforts in advocating for a third hospital in Brampton,
As Board Chairs, we are deeply committed to enhancing health care in Brampton – and we
know we are not alone in this mission, We also know we cannot achieve all that is needed
without the support of our municipal government partners and community.
We thank Mayor Patrick Brown, Brampton City Council and the residents of this community
for al you’ve done to help us arrive at this important point in Brampton’s health care journey.
Our continued partnership and your support is essential to bring our plans to fruition and build
the future of health care in Brampton,
Geoffrey Ritchie, Chair. William Osler Health System Board of Directors
