Windsor Regional Hospital is opening a new paediatric clinic on Tuesday for urgent medical assessments of children 17 years of age and under at the site of its former Met Campus COVID-19 Assessment Centre.

The PUMA Clinic – the Paediatric Urgent Medical Assessment Clinic – is intended for urgent medical COVID-19 assessments of children 17 years of age and under. =

The clinic will handle a recent and expected continued surge in children and youth seeking medical attention amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It is hoped that this clinic will help focus on this demographic and divert patients from the Emergency Department to help reduce wait times for all demographics.

The PUMA Clinic will offer COVID-19 testing, urgent care medical assessment based on potential COVID-19 symptoms and, where appropriate, COVID-19 vaccinations using the approved Pfizer vaccine for those born in 2009 or later.

The clinic will be open seven days a week from noon until 8 pm.  The booking site will open at 12pm noon August 30th, 2021. It will open at noon every day to book still available same day and next day paediatric urgent medical appointments.  To book an appointment online visit wrh.on.ca/OnlineBooking.

You can also book an appointment by calling 519-973-4443. Phones are answered Monday to Friday, between 8 am and 4 pm
