Our Programs and Services

We are committed to ensuring that our patients have access to timely, high-quality primary care medical services, while emphasizing health promotion, disease prevention and improved management of chronic disease.

Our Services

In addition to family physicians, the Ottawa Valley FHT includes a nurse practitioner, a pharmacist, mental health/social workers, two registered nurses and a registered dietitian.

Primary Services

Primary care generally refers to a patient’s first contact with the health care system.  It is the point where people receive care for most of their everyday health needs. The Ottawa Valley FHT has 13 primary care physicians.

Uninsured Services

Not all of the services that your primary care physician provides you are insured through the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).  Your physician can request a payment from you for those services. A listing of the most common uninsured medical services, including the associated costs, which are not covered by OHIP is available at the clinic.

Chronic Disease Management and Prevention and Health Promotion

As part of the comprehensive care we provide to patients and their families, we also offer chronic disease management and prevention and health promotion programs.

Chronic disease management focuses on preventing diseases from progressing following diagnosis. Health promotion focuses on maintaining health and preventing diseases from occurring.

The Ottawa Valley FHT offers chronic disease management and health promotion programs and services in the following areas:

  • Diabetes
  • Geriatrics
  • Respiratory Diseases/Smoking Cessation
  • Mental Health
  • Women’s Health/Maternal and Postpartum Care

Patients who are eligible to participate in these programs are referred by their family physician.

For more information about Ottawa Valley FHT programs and services, or to request a referral, please speak with your family physician.
