Six new family health teams open in Toronto
Six new Family Health Teams (FHTs) have opened in Toronto. One of them is the Village Family Health Team, which opened in 2011. The Village FHT will continue to grow – expanding its chronic disease and mental health programs – eventually caring for 10,000 patients.
There are currently 21 FHTs in Toronto providing interdisciplinary health care – and the total number of FHTs province-wide is now 200. In Toronto, the new FHTs will serve approximately 316,000 patients, including almost 86,000 people who did not previously have access to a family doctor.
