Urgent and primary care centre slated for Cowichan region in B.C.

COWICHAN, B.C. – The Government of British Columbia has announced those living in Duncan, B.C. and the surrounding area will soon have a new urgent and primary care centre (UPCC).

The Cowichan UPCC is scheduled to open in 2025 at 940 Government St. in downtown Duncan and will provide urgent and episodic primary care with extended hours, as well as longitudinal primary care services for patients attached to the UPCC, a release said.

“We are pleased that construction on Cowichan’s new urgent and primary care centre is now underway. This UPCC will provide residents with timely access to integrated, comprehensive, culturally safe and trauma-informed primary care,” Island Health board chair Leah Hollins said in a statement.

The centre will be approximately 930 square metres and will include a patient waiting room, reception, medication, point-of-care testing area, staff work and meeting rooms.

The Cowichan UPCC will be operated by Island Health and is a collaboration between Island Health, the provincial ministry of health, the Cowichan Primary Care Network, Indigenous communities and organizations and the Cowichan Division of Family Practice.
