Peel Memorial Centre for Health and Wellness Redevelopment Masterplan
Client: William Osler Health System
Size: 450,000 sq.ft. (42,000 sq.m.)
The Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness is William Osler Healthcare System’s approach to transforming how we deliver care so people can stay healthier and manage disease better. Peel Memorial will connect people with the services and support they need to restore and maintain their health, in a place that is accessible, inviting and inspiring.
Zeidler was selected through a competitive tendering process to design initial conceptual renderings for Peel. The site will become an integral part of the City’s vision for downtown Brampton. The hospital will become part of the health and wellness district, with an Ambulatory Care Centre, as well as other development parcels related to health and wellness such as medical of ce buildings, retirement homes, long-term care, and children’s clinics. The program of the ambulatory centre focuses on surgical clinics, day surgery, chronic disease management, urgent care, complex continuing care beds and the necessary diagnostic services to support these activities.
A green spine is planned as the main pedestrian circulation corridor, both separating and connecting the adjoining east section of the site with the west health centre section. At the south end of the site a tower landmark terminates the green spine. Two urban plazas along John Street form a pedestrian gateway, celebrating the terminus viewpoints, and strengthening the hospital’s integration into the urban fabric.
