Scarborough Urgent Care Centre (Walk-in)

Providing medical care for non-life threatening conditions in the East Greater Toronto Area

Doctor with a senior patient

Scarborough Health Network’s Urgent Care Centre at our Centenary Hospital offers walk-in medical attention from experienced doctors and nurses for non-life-threatening conditions that do not need to be seen in the emergency department.

If you do not have or can’t be seen as quickly by a family doctor, our Urgent Care Centre team is here for you.

What can the Urgent Care Centre help with?

As an extension of our emergency department, the Urgent Care Centre is staffed by skilled emergency doctors and nurses who treat patients six months and older with non-critical sicknesses and injuries, who do not require hospitalization or immediate surgery.

Conditions treated include:

  • Fevers, coughs and colds
  • Infections
  • Earaches, eye injuries
  • Nose and throat complaints
  • Sports injuries (including sprains, strains or broken bones)
  • Deep cuts
  • Minor burns
  • Insect bites
  • Allergies, skin rashes

Urgent care services are covered with a valid Ontario health card. Minimal fees may apply for items such as fiberglass casts, crutches, etc.
