BFHT expanding into the community!

By May 4, 2018Uncategorized

On Wednesday, May 2nd 2018 we were honoured to host Minister Eleanor McMahon for an important announcement. We were also joined by our partner organizations from Joseph Brant Hospital and the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant Local Health Integration Network.

The Burlington Family Health Team has received funding for services to be provided to patients of our Burlington community Primary Care Physicians. There will be two programs offered, Mental Health Services and a Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation/Activation Program. Planning is currently in progress with a target of opening the services for referrals in the summer. More details will become available as we move into the implementation phase.

We are proud to have been provided this funding by the Government of Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term care. We look forward to supporting our community through providing more access to Interdisciplinary Primary Care teams.
