What is a Family Health Team

A FHT provides families and individuals of Ontario a "medical home" where their health needs can be met. It is a team approach that brings together family doctors, Nurse Practitioners and other Health Care Providers in order to coordinate the best possible care for patients. Every member of the team works collaboratively to keep you and your family healthy. 

When you enroll as a patient with the MVFHT, you will have a team of health care providers, programs, and services available to you.

Residents & Medical Students

The Maitland Valley Medical Centre is a teaching centre for the University Of Western Ontario School Of Medicine and collaborates with Medical Training Programs from other Universities. The Family Health Team of the Maitland Valley Medical Centre is committed to providing rural based medical education to 3rd and 4th year medical students and family practice residents. While receiving health care in clinic, you may receive care from one of the Medical Residents. We appreciate your continuing support as a patient of this program. They provide another source of service and sometimes the latest insights in Healthcare. Many resident Physicians have expressed highly positive feedback about their experiences in Goderich and this can lead to future physicians locating in the area. 


If you would like a referral to any of these professionals, please contact our administrative staff or talk to your physician or nurse practitioner.
