Update on the Mattawa Family Health Team

In May 2018 it the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care announced that Mattawa would be receiving a Family Health Team to enhance health care services in the area.

While this is great news for the region, not everyone may be familiar with what a Family Health Team is and how they work.  The following information is intended to provide a little more detail and answer any initial questions you might have.   Hopefully, by the end of the article you will realize the favourable impact Mattawa Family Health Team will have on the health care for the community.

Mattawa and Area Family Health Team

In May, we announced that the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care had approved our Hospital with the funding for an interprofessional care team.  Patients who are part of a primary care team typically report higher levels of access to care compared to Ontario residents in general. The key drivers for enhancing patient access include reduced wait times, and interprofessional services.  Patients are able to see the right provider, at the right time! We are pleased to provide you with additional information on the care that will be available at the Mattawa and Area Family Health Team.

A Place Called Home

We are extremely happy to inform everyone that the construction of the new Nursing Home and Health Hub is coming along wonderfully.  We are on time, with a tentative move in date of October 20th, 2018!  We are so touched by all the support and feedback we have received from our community, we hope to soon offer some tours to the public and showcase this beautiful new home.  Stay tuned.

We have heard from you that there were some questions regarding the color of the brick that was chosen and decided to share with you the process and rational behind the beautiful red brick.

How did we choose the red brick - During the planning stages of this project, community members, families and residents were presented with several choices for the exterior finish of the home.  Many engagement sessions took place and everyone participated in the decision.
