Convert the new Peel Memorial Centre to a facility with funded hospital beds

The current facility, Brampton Civic Hospital (BCH) is overwhelmed with patients. BCH is forced to accommodate patients in hallways instead of proper hospital rooms. The provincial average for funded hospital beds is currently 2.3 beds per 1000; based on this average, Brampton should have 1205 beds for a population of 523900 people. BCH has only 608 beds for the city of Brampton and the surrounding areas. Peel Memorial Centre does not have any beds for overnight stays, it is strictly an outpatient/urgent care facility.  Converting some of the new Peel Memorial Centre to include beds would be the quickest way to address this urgent situation in Brampton.

The patient in the picture above is receiving a blood transfusion in the Acute Care section of the ER at Brampton Civic Hospital.  I was informed that he passed away a few days later.  We cannot allow this chronic shortage of beds to continue any longer, we must speak out now.

Convert the new Peel Memorial Centre to a facility with funded hospital beds

Dear Premier Wynne, and Dr. Hoskins:

As a concerned citizen of the City of Brampton, I have a very serious concern regarding the state of healthcare in our fair city.  I am appalled at seeing reports that the only full-time hospital in Brampton, the staff are forced to place patients wherever there is space available, be it in the hallway, closet, etc.  I find this to be an outrageous situation both for staff and patients.  

The provincial average for the number of funded beds per 1000 people is 2.3.  In Brampton, with a population of 523,900 people, based on this average there should be 1205 funded beds available, there are currently 608 beds available at Brampton Civic.  This must be corrected immediately!  The fastest way to add funded beds would be to convert some of the recently opened Peel Memorial Centre into a facility with funded beds to help with the overcrowding at Brampton Civic Hospital.

The need for a second hospital for Brampton was identified in the early 1970s.  Brampton has waited long enough.  You have a chance to correct this NOW.  Please do the right thing!

Thank you for your consideration,

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
