More than 6,000 patients in the Leeds-Grenville region will get a family doctor.
That’s according to an announcement from MPP Steve Clark.
The announcement says the provincial government is investing $110-million into primary care providers, including the Upper Canada Family Health Team.
It goes on to clarify that the funding will allow the organization to take on as many as 6,600 new patients.
“Our community expects high-quality primary health care,” Executive Director Sherri Hudson says. “This is investment will assist the Upper Canada Family Health Team continue to play a vital role in the community’s health and well-being.”
According to the announcement, the goal of the investment is to connect nearly 330,000 new patients with long-term care providers across Ontario.
In a phone call with Moose FM, Clark says an exact dollar figure is still being ironed out, and that most of the funding coming to our area will go towards the Family Health Team’s Mallorytown clinic.
