The Hamilton Health Sciences West End Clinic and Urgent Care Centre is a hub for various outpatient-based services.

The Urgent Care Centre is one of two in Hamilton and offers walk-in medical care for patients with urgent health concerns that can’t wait for a family doctor. It’s staffed by emergency room doctors and provides care for a range of issues including minor broken bones, respiratory illnesses, and minor infections.

The West End Clinic is home to Hamilton Health Sciences’ preoperative clinic, which provides services to patients scheduled for surgery at Hamilton Health Sciences. It’s also home to our special immunology clinic, which provides specialized care to children and adults who are living with HIV.
