Who We Are

what are family health teams...

Family Health Teams Family Health Teams are primary health care organizations that include a team of family physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, social workers, dietitians, and other professionals who work together to provide primary health care for their community. They ensure that people receive the care they need in their communities, as each team is set-up based on local health and community needs. Family Health Teams were created to expand access to comprehensive family health care services across Ontario. Since 2005, 185 Family Health Teams have been operationalized through five waves of implementation, with the last 50 implemented in 2011/12. There are currently over 3.4 million Ontarians enrolled in Family Health Teams in over 200 communities across Ontario. Family Health Teams are community-centred primary care organizations whose programs and services are geared to the population groups they serve. In addition to the 72 Family Health Teams serving rural communities and 44 Family Health Teams serving northern communities, Family Health Teams are also providing primary care services to unique populations of patients with specialized health needs.
