About the Portage Medical Family Health Team

Portage Medical Family Health Team began in 2007 in Niagara Falls, ON.  We are a collaborative partnership comprising of Family Physicians and Allied Health Professionals who all work together to provide patients with effective, timely and efficient care. 

Our vision is a healthier community through the delivery of primary care services focusing on chronic disease management, disease prevention, health promotion and mental health services.

 

What is a Family Health Team?

A Family Health Team is an approach to primary health care that brings together different health care providers to co-ordinate the highest possible quality of care for you - the patient.

Designed to improve and expand access to primary care, most Family Health Teams consist of doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, dietitians and other health care professionals who work collaboratively, each utilizing their experience and skills so that you receive the very best care, when you need it, as close to home as possible. Their focus is on keeping you and your family healthy, not just treating you when you are sick.

When you enroll as a patient with the Portage Medical FHT, you are taking a step to ensure that you always have ready access to health care from a family doctor and a team of health care providers.
