Support from our donors and the Ontario government are making it happen for Peel Memorial.

Osler Foundation has officially completed the campaign to equip Phase I of Peel Memorial. Our heartfelt thanks to all our donors and supporters…with your support we are bringing much needed access to expanded programs and services, and exceptional care, closer to home.
 
With gratitude and pride in the community that supports us, Osler announced the completion of Phase I of the new Peel Memorial at our annual gala benefit concert. The support of our donors has been overwhelming, and we thank each and every one of you. Without you, this revolutionary new hospital would not exist.
 
Major hospital expansion for Peel Memorial
 
More big news for Peel! On November 9, 2017, Ontario’s Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, The Honourable Dr. Eric Hoskins, joined dignitaries, hospital and community leaders to announce the province’s commitment to fund Phase II of the new Peel Memorial.
 
This is welcome news for Osler, as Phase II of Peel Memorial will significantly expand access to health care in the growing Brampton community and complement the great care already being provided at our new outpatient hospital. The vision for Phase II is a multi-floor tower with more than 100 new rehab and complex continuing care beds – an increase in inpatient capacity equivalent to that of a new, mid-sized hospital.
 
This commitment demonstrates the government’s recognition of the continued needs of the communities Osler serves, and the extent to which the community has embraced the challenge of building Peel Memorial with donations large and small. 
 
“This is an exciting time for health care in Brampton,” said Dr. Brendan Carr, President and CEO, Osler. “The announcement is an investment in the future of health care in this community, and wonderful news for people across this region – as well as Osler’s dedicated staff and physicians. We look forward to continuing to work with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, the Central West LHIN, and Infrastructure Ontario…to meet the increasing health care needs of the community, now and into the future.”
