The City of Lakes Family Health Team is always looking for interested family physicians who want to practice in a collaborative team environment. All patients are rostered to one of our family physicians. Individual physicians set up their practice at one of our clinic locations.
Currently, we have capacity for family physicians as follows:
- Sudbury Clinic – at full capacity
- Val Caron Clinic – space for 1 additional physician
- Walden Clinic – at full capacity.
- Chelmsford Clinic – space for 1 physician. Anticipated opening is 2016.
The Family Health Network (FHN)
Physicians on our team are members of a Family Health Network (FHN). Based on an agreement with the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care, the FHN uses a blended payment model which includes a capitation payment derived from the size of their individual patient roster. Other special premiums are paid to the physician for several areas of care including preventative care, hospital services, palliative care, home visits, obstetrics and prenatal care. All patients are rostered to an individual physician. Physicians and nurse practitioners have a rotating schedule for after hour’s clinics provided to our patients by appointment only. Physicians can refer their patients to any member of our interdisciplinary team.
