An urgent primary care centre will open in Kelowna, likely in winter, the provincial government announced on Thursday.

The care centre will be located at 1141 Harvey Avenue, in front of the Coast Capri hotel near Gordon Avenue, and will be open seven days a week, from 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., including statutory holidays.

The government said the care centre will focus on urgent primary care that’s needed within 12 to 24 hours — such as sprains, urinary problems, ear infections, minor cuts or burns — and for when the situation is not a true emergency.
