The establishment of the Mattawa Family Health Team was announced by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care in May 2018 with the goal of addressing the healthcare needs of the community through a collaboration between family physicians, interdisciplinary healthcare providers and community partners.
Located within the Mattawa Hospital, the Mattawa Family Health Team works together using their skills and experiences to surround patients with the healthcare services they need, when they need it and as close to home as possible.
The programs and services to be provided by the Mattawa Family Health Team will be created specifically to address our community's healthcare needs as defined through local community consultantation and patient engagement. Family Health Teams focuses on Health Promotion, the Management of Chronic Diseases and Illness Prevention.
