About Penticton Urgent and Primary Care Centre (UPCC)

​The Penticton Urgent and Primary Care Centre (UPCC) provides team-based care for non-emergency health concerns to individuals in Penticton who require same day attention. Care is available for concerns such as:

  • Minor injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Infections
  • Less serious child illness and injury
  • High fever
  • Cuts, wounds or skin conditions

If you do not have a family doctor / nurse practitioner, or you are unable to get an appointment with your care provider that day, you can visit the UPCC. A health-care team is available to provide care for your health issues. You may see one or more of the following health professionals depending on your care needs:

  • Family physician
  • Nurse practitioner
  • Registered nurse
  • Social worker
  • Physiotherapist
  • Mental health and substance use clinicians

UPCC patients are seen based on urgency, not on a first come first serve basis. While we don't book appointments, we recommend you phone us at 250-770-3696 and talk to one of our registered nurses prior to coming in to the UPCC. 

Long-term primary care services for people with mental health and / or substance use needs are also available through Martin Street Outreach. During operating hours, if you are a regular and ongoing patient of the Outreach clinic, appointments may be available. For assistance please call 250-770-3696.
