In 2010 Dr. Kushner, a family physician and Chief of Family Medicine at Humber River Hospital called together 30 local family physicians to develop a Family Health Team (FHT), to better serve their patients unique health needs. The FHT came together in 2011 and was made up of different health care professionals, to provide care and added support to patients and families. Presently members of the FHT see patients at our Dixon and Weston locations, with plans for expansion to other sites. Please see our About Us section to see what Health Care Professionals are included in the FHT.
The Humber River FHT is geographically located within the Central LHIN, however provides care to people from various parts of Toronto and the GTA. Under the current funding model the FHT provides care to all patients who are rostered with an associated physician. With the Patients First Act, this care delivery model may change, allowing us to serve all members of the community.
