Who is on a Family Health Organization?

All Family Health Organizations share the same goal: giving you better access to health care and more comprehensive services. The Peterborough Family Health Team is comprised of five Family Health Organizations: the Chemong Family Health Organization, the Greater Peterborough Family Health Organization, the Medical Centre Family Health Organization, the Peterborough Clinic Family Health Organization, and the Peterborough Community Family Health Organization.

In addition to your family doctor, our organizations include the following health professionals:
