In 2007, a Family Health Team was launched after having successfully met the requirements of a Ministry of Health and Long Term Care competition. This collaborative and interdisciplinary model of care includes a variety of allied health professionals and incorporates programs for managing chronic diseases.
Designed to give doctors support from other complementary professionals, the BWFHT consists of nurses, nurse practitioners and other health care professionals who work collaboratively, each utilizing their experience and skills so that our patients receive the very best care, when they need it, as close to home as possible. The FHT continues to grow to meet the community’s evolving needs.
