We want to do everything we can with integrity, knowledge and compassion.
The Garden City Family Health Team offers our patients a team approach to health care. Our team includes patients, family doctors, social workers, dietitians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and psychiatrists. As a team, we work together to come up with the best possible plan for the health and wellness of our patients.
Our vision is to work with our patients and families towards optimizing
their health status and well being. Our focus is on health care, health promotion, disease prevention and chronic disease management.
The Garden City Family Health Team will provide comprehensive, compassionate and holistic primary health care to patients/families, which will improve their health and well being and recognize patient accountability. Utilizing the interdisciplinary team approach, and supported by an integral IT platform, the Family Health Team will focus on core primary care services, health promotion, disease prevention and chronic disease management. The Family Health Team will collaborate with other service providers and facilitate timely access to health services not available at the Garden City Family Health Team. The Family Health Team will work with educational institutions to expand the clinical teaching program for medical and healthcare students and enhance the learning environment for team members.
