New Healthcare Services in Castlegar
The City is pleased the Kootenay’s first urgent and primary care centre (UPCC) is coming to Castlegar. The UPCC will help connect patients with the health care they need right here in our community and means:
- shorter waits for appointments
- access to services if you don’t have a family practitioner
- urgent care without emergency room waits
- more health care practitioners in the community
The announcement of the UPCC opening this spring, paired with major upgrades at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital in Trail, means better care and services for everyone in our region.
