Our Vision:                                                                                                                                We envision creating a family centred care environment to
provide quality health care to the people we serve.

Our Mission:                                                                                                                        Our mission is to enhance the delivery of health care with the
goal of improving the health and well-being of all patients we
serve through a collaborative team approach in partnership with
the patient and family.

The Family Health Team staff will be:

  • To treat each patient as if they truly matter;
  • Appreciating diversity and accepting each patient for who
    they are;
  • Transparent and accountable with patients;
  • Creating a comfortable environment for patients to voice
    their own health care choices;
  • Meeting them where they are in their present
  • Provide care that fosters respect and dignity.

What Is A Family Health Team (FHT)?

Most FHTs will consist of doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, and other health care professionals who work together, each using  their experiences and skills so that the patient receive the very best care.

What will FHTs mean to me?

  • Your family doctor will continue to see you during regular office hours.
  • You will have access to  Nurse practitioners, Nurses, Dieticians, Pharmacists and Social Workers.
  • You will have access to a FHT doctor during evening and weekend hours for urgent problems.
  • If you see another doctor at the clinc, your own doctor will receive documentation about the nature of your problem so that he/she will always be up-to-date about your medical condition.
