The new Peel Memorial Centre provides ambulatory care to serve the diverse community of Brampton. Peel Memorial Centre is a state-of-the-art facility, designed to achieve LEED® Silver certification, delivering care through an inter-professional and innovative partnership model.

Osler’s health and wellness systems based approach includes excellence in Rehabilitation and Seniors Health, Mental Health and Addictions and Women’s and Children’s Health supported by urgent care, ambulatory surgery and diagnostic services.

As the predominant entrance to the building is on the north side, a public concourse was devised to provide simple, direct, and intuitive way-finding. This allows the public and patients to access any and all clinics and public amenities off this public concourse. A separate non-public service corridor to the south will maintain strong staff connectivity, allow easy access for support function and materials, provide access to staff only spaces, limit crossover, and foster appropriate infection control practices. Central public and service elevators were located respectively off the public concourse and service corridor to reinforce and maintain this simple circulation system.

Optimal adjacencies and sightlines, and minimized travel distances between departments have been carefully planned.

The new 586,000 square foot health care centre also provides 573 below grade parking spaces.
