Haliburton Highlands Family Health Team

The Ministry of Health & Long Term Care has funded a Family Health Team (FHT) in the Haliburton Highlands.  A partnership between the HKPR Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), the Haliburton Highlands Health Services (HHHS), and the Haliburton Family Health Network (Haliburton physicians) has developed gradually, and is now providing health care to residents of Haliburton County.  A group of health professionals, including physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and health specialists work closely with each other and with community partners to provide service to people of the Highlands.

The Haliburton FHT is located in the new medical centre called Haliburton Highlands Health Centre, and the Minden FHT offices are located in the second story of HHHS, above the Minden Emergency Hospital.
