Brampton Civic Hospital is an acute care hospital in Brampton, Ontario and part of the William Osler Health System. It is a community teaching hospital for the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine of McMaster University.

History[edit]

The 608-bed hospital[1] was designed by Parkin Architects Limited in joint venture with Adamson Associates and built by a joint venture of Carillion and EllisDon.[2] The Brampton Civic Hospital is one of Canada's first public hospitals to be designed, built, financed, and maintained under a private-public partnership. It opened in 2007 and replaced the Peel Memorial Hospital which previously served Brampton and the surrounding area.[3]

Operations[edit]

Brampton Civic Hospital currently serves approximately 500,000 residents in Brampton and the surrounding areas. The facility can accommodate 80,000 emergency patient visits and 201,000 ambulatory care visits annually.[4] The hospital has 4,100 employees.[4]
