Urgent Care Centre
When a same-day appointment isn’t available with your family doctor or a walk-in clinic and your health concern needs to be addressed within 24 hours, the Urgent Care Centre is where to go for non-life-threatening illness or injury. If your concern is NOT urgent, please explore other health-care options at RightPlaceRightCare.ca.
