Community Health Care Options

If you do not require emergency care, there are options available to you within the community, based on your needs. Below you will find resources that may be a better option than the hospital’s ED.

For the 2023/24 cough, cold and flu season, a temporary paediatric clinic has opened at the Summerville Family Health Team. The Mississauga Pediatric Care Clinic is available to children aged 6-months-old to 17-years-old who do not have a family physician, or their family physician does not have an after hours on-call clinic to assist you/your child with certain non-urgent care needs (e.g. Cough, cold and flu symptoms).

Address: Corner of Queensway and Confederation at 101 Queensway West Mississauga, 7th Floor

Paxlovid:
Did you know? Your local hospital is still admitting patients due to severe cases of COVID-19. Over the past couple months, approximately 30 people have been admitted to the hospital each day, with the average age being 80-years-old. COVID-19 is still a risk to our most vulnerable community members. If you test positive for the virus, pharmacists are now able to prescribe the anti-viral medication Paxlovid, which may reduce severe illness. Studies show this could be by 89% if you have not been vaccinated for COVID-19. Speak to your pharmacist to see if Paxlovid is right for you. Click here for more information on Paxlovid prescriptions.
