About William Osler Health System
As Ontario’s largest community hospital, Osler serves a population of over 1.3 million people living in one of the fastest growing and most culturally diverse regions of Canada. The emergency departments at our two hospitals – Brampton Civic Hospital and Etobicoke General Hospital – are among the busiest in the province and our labour and delivery program is the largest in the Greater Toronto Area.
Scheduled to open in early 2017, Osler’s Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health & Wellness will provide specialized outpatient-based care, including urgent care, day surgery, and clinics that help individuals better manage chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes and kidney disease.
