Credit Valley Hospital - Wellness Information

When we think of hospitals, we think of a place to go when we're sick or injured. But hospitals and the professionals who work in them, possess a wealth of information regarding the prevention of illness and injury.

These pages are designed to provide you with useful, reliable information about a variety of health issues and prevention tips. Much of this information has been taken from the pages of Credit Valley's newspaper, "A Credit To Your Health" which is published five times each year and distributed to homeowners in Mississauga via the Mississauga News. Copies of the complete issues of "A Credit To Your Health" can be reviewed through the Publications section of our website.

We hope you will find our wellness information useful and informative. If you have suggestions for future articles, please feel free to send us an email at
