Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) are being built across the province to provide a new way of delivering more connected care and facilitating access for patients and caregivers. OHTs will strive to improve the experience for patients receiving care and for health care providers working as one team. See this FAQ for more information.

The Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Ontario Health Team (FL&A-OHT) is working toward providing more efficient, integrated and equitable health care to the people of the FL&A region. See our year-one projects below for a view of the higher risk groups we will focus on this first year.

As the  FL&A-OHT evolves, we will share developments with you. We also invite you to get involved and share your ideas.
