Main Street West Urgent Care Centre


The Main Street West Urgent Care Centre (UCC) opened on April 4, 2011, providing another level of care to the community. The UCC serves as an alternative between the doctor's office and an emergency department (ED) as an option when someone is not sick enough to visit an ED but can't wait for an appointment with their doctor.
