New urgent care centre

Castanet: The new urgent and primary care centre has already had more than 100 patients roll through. "A little over one-in-four people who go to Kelowna General Hospital in the emergency would be as well or better served coming in right here," said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health. The facility features six exam rooms, two treatment rooms, a consultation room, a waiting room and a medication room.  Currently, the centre is open seven days-a-week from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with hours expected to expand in the coming months.
