Are you Fit2Sit?

Fit2Sit is a joint program between Peel Regional Paramedic Services and William Osler Health System through which patients arriving at Brampton Civic Hospital by ambulance will sit in a waiting room chair upon their arrival, if they are well enough to do so.

By being Fit2Sit, you’re helping to:

  • free up stretchers for others in need
  • allow paramedics to return to the community faster to continue providing emergency care

Brampton Civic staff will monitor each patient who is Fit2Sit while they wait to be seen by a physician or nurse. Patients are asked to inform the triage nurse immediately if their condition changes.
