Health care and programs

To view the health care and programs offered at the Health Hub, please contact the Algonquin Family Health Team.

Primary Care

Primary care is available for residents currently without a family doctor/nurse practitioner. The Health Hub offers support with:

  • Periodic or minor illnesses and injuries
  • Periodic health exams (including immunizations, physicals, etc.)
  • Management of chronic diseases (including diabetes, high blood pressure or cholesterol, asthma, heart disease) and more

Stay tuned for future expansion of primary care services, which may include community mental health, addictions outreach, and family and children services.

Episodic Care

Episodic care is available for seasonal visitors and residents that have a family doctor/nurse practitioner.* This includes minor illnesses (fever, cough, sore throat) and minor injuries (minor cuts, scrapes, insect bites).

*If you have a local doctor/nurse practitioner, we encourage you to always seek care from them first. Since they know your medical history, you will receive the best care from them. We may be able to help you when your health care provider is unable to see you in a timely manner for a periodic illness or injury.
