welcome to our websiteAbout The Chatham-Kent Family Health Team

Mission, Vision, Values

Our goal at the CKFHT is to provide the very best health care which is patient-centred and responsive to local community needs. Primary Health Care is the “navigator” of the health care system. It provides clinical services as close to home as possible, it provides system access, and it provides continuity of care. The Chatham-Kent Family Health Teams is improving access to primary health care through interdisciplinary health teams including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse educators, dietitian services, social work to name a few. These teams have been developed with cooperation and input from both the community and the providers. The teams will build on the successes of the past but may be different sizes and offer different programs, tailored to meet the needs of the local population they serve.

Our Mission: Collaborating to build a healthy community

Our Vision: A robust team of professionals providing access to those in need, leveraging partnerships to enhance healthcare in our community
