Albanese’s been busy: new family health teams announced

Laura Albanese, our MPP, has had a busy week. Yesterday she announced that the new Humber River Regional Hosptial and the West Park Healthcare Centre will get ‘family health teams’ to “provide increased access to care for 40,000 residents.” Earlier this week, she announced that West Park will be expanding.

Family Health Teams are supposed to more closely integrate doctors, nurses, dietitians, pharmacists, and nurse practitioners to improve the quality of care. They also offer extended office hours and after-hours care. The government says that this reduces costs while improving care by diverting patients from emergency rooms.
