The Kawartha North Family Health Team provides a foundation of good health for the communities we serve to flourish and grow.

This commitment is exemplified in our core C.A.R.E. principles:

  • Community led with a sustainable long-term vision for primary health services in our area
  • Attuned to the unique needs of our population
  • Responsive support to help restore health, prevent illness and injuries, better manage disease, and promote healthy lifestyles
  • Excellence and compassion above all

Founded in 2006, the Kawartha North Family Health Team (FHT) is composed of physicians, nurse practitioners, and registered nursing staff supported by highly dedicated clinic coordinators and an array of allied health professionals. As a community-led FHT, our team is steered by a volunteer board of directors composed of local residents and is managed by a full-time executive director.

At the Kawartha North FHT, we understand that dependable access to high-quality health care is vital to a community’s well-being and its economy. We are committed to providing and evolving a long-term framework for health care delivery that meets the ongoing needs of the people we serve.
