ABOUT US

 

Ontario Health Teams (OHTs) are being built across the province to provide a new way of delivering more connected care and facilitating access for individuals and their caregivers. OHTs will strive to improve the experience for those receiving and providing care

The Frontenac, Lennox & Addington Ontario Health Team (FLA-OHT) was designated by the Ministry of Health in November 2020. Take a tour below to learn about our geographical region, our partners and how our journey evolved.

 

The FLA-OHT is working toward providing more efficient, integrated and equitable health care to the people of the FLA region. The OHT structure involves community and provider partnerships. The OHT foundation adapts the concept of "Health Homes & Neighbourhoods", since most care occurs in the home, by the person and their family and caregivers. 

 

 

 

 

During our first year we will focus on the higher risk groups outlined in our year-one projectsAs the  FLA-OHT evolves, we will share developments with you. This FAQ provides more information.
