Welcome!

We are our community’s new Family Health Team made up of local family doctors working together with our team’s nurse practitioners, family health nurses, dietician, pharmacists, psychologist, social workers, occupational therapist and respiratory therapist.

The members of our team work with your family doctor to provide you with complete health care. This way, patients receive different kinds of expert care and can see a health professional sooner. We also partner with other, local health organizations and offer a variety of health programs designed to meet the specific needs of patients in our community.


Working together, our team strives to ensure all our patients have the best possible care and live healthy lives.

Funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, our team is making a difference in the health and well-being of the people of our community

Accessible dooes improve Fenelon Medical Centre for patients and healthcare

Business just picked up at the medical centre on Francis Street in Fenelon Falls. The City of Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team, working with building's owner, has now installed power openers on the centre's eight main doors.

"It was overdue" says Mike Perry, Executive Director of the City of Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team. "This building was built over 30 years ago so it took time to get these installed."

Patients had been struggling with the heavy metal doors, especially in the winter. "It's a necessity" notes Perry. "People come to a medical clinic when they are not feeling well. Many are frail, so in addition to increasing accessibility these door openers help prevent injuries and falls which in turn help patients and the healthcare system. Accessibility is more than ramps" he adds. Visible accessibility also raise awareness of disability issues in the community.

New patient Horace Ellens is thrilled with the new feature: "I have health issues which affect my balance" he confides. "These easier doors means I don't have to struggle with my cane and the door. I feel much more stable. That's important"

"Automatic power door openers are an effective universal design that enables access to buildings for people of all abilities, thereby enhancing the health and quality of life for everyone" stated family health team Occupational Therapist Tanya Nye.
