Brampton Civic Hospital is an acute care hospital in Brampton, Ontario and part of the William Osler Health Centre along with the nearby Etobicoke General Hospital. It is a community teaching hospital of McMaster University Medical School.

History[edit]

The 608-bed hospital[1] was designed by Parkin Architects Limited in joint venture with Adamson Associates Architects 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 replaces the Peel Memorial Hospital which previously served Brampton and the surrounding area.

It 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.[3] The hospital staff consists of 4,100 members.[3]
