Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness – Phase II
Following the recent opening of Phase I of the Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness in 2017, the Provincial government recently announced a commitment to fund Phase II of the expansion of Peel Memorial Centre into a full hospital.
