Exciting news for CAMH and all residents of the neighbourhoods surrounding our Queen Street West site: the Village Family Health Team (FHT) will open at its permanent location in December 2011, offering innovative, high quality, comprehensive primary care across the lifespan to the community. CAMH pursued a Family Health Team for its community due to the high number of people living nearby, including CAMH clients, who were unable to find a family doctor.
|The Village FHT physicians are looking forward to welcoming CAMH neighbours from the FHT catchment area who need a family doctor.|
Currently under construction in Liberty Village, Village FHT will have eight full time physicians, a nurse practitioner, registered nurses, a social worker, a clinical pharmacist and a dietitian, with clerical and administrative support when fully operational. An onsite pharmacy will open in December as well.
Village FHT is now accepting pre-registration for community members from the catchment area who live in the community bounded by: College Street to the north, Bathurst Street to the east, Lakeshore Boulevard to the south and Roncesvalles Avenue to the west.
Anyone living in the catchment area looking for a primary care provider may preregister online
or by calling (416) 599-4383. Patients will be contacted when the doors are open at 171 East Liberty Street, Unit 102, in December.
As part of the neighbourhood, the FHT will support CAMH’s redevelopment vision by integrating comprehensive community-based primary care with mental health and addictions care.

Village FHT will offer prevention, education, care and treatment that promote a health body and mind in a respectful, inclusive and collaborative model of care.
