The service will begin on Tuesday, February 28 for unattached patients seeking primary care. The phone line to book an appointment will open a day before on the 27th of February, by calling 705-789-1744. Appointments can also be booked at algonquinfht.ca.
Patients who have a local family doctor or nurse practitioner will not be seen for primary care at the clinic and redirected back to their doctor or nurse practitioner.
The Algonquin Family Health Team and the Town of Huntsville have been partnering together to create the Huntsville Health Care Clinic, located at The Annex, 1 Minerva Street East.
The Clinic’s goals are to reduce Emergency Department visits and provide comprehensive primary care to the community for those who do not have a family
doctor or nurse practitioner.
“The HHCC will not be taking on patients permanently. Patients without a primary care provider are asked to sign up on their local waitlist. Accessing this clinic will not affect your waitlist status. We understand that there is a great need for primary care in Huntsville and beyond and we are expecting high volumes. Your understanding and patience is important as we start to see unattached patients,” states the release. “Requests for appointments will be returned if we can accommodate you. Unattached patients in the Huntsville area are encouraged to register on the wait list on the Algonquin Family Health Team website at algonquinfht.ca and can also access virtual care and learn more about where to get care at https://www.mahc.ca/en/services/where-to-get-care-muskoka.aspx.“
