About Family Health Teams
Family Health Teams are a key piece of the provincial government's plan to build a health care system that promotes good health, reduces wait times and improves access to care. In Family Health Teams, family doctors work with other health care professionals such as nurse practitioners, nurses, mental health counsellors, dietitians and pharmacists to see more patients and to keep them healthy.
 
About the Hamilton Family Health Team
The Hamilton Family Health Team (HFHT) located in downtown Hamilton, serves part of the Local Health Integration Network 4 (LHIN 4 Hamilton, Niagara, Haldimand and Brant) region and is the largest Family Health Team in Ontario.
 
Improving the Health Care System
The vision of the HFHT is simple - to build “a healthier Hamilton”.
