About Bancroft FHT
Providing Disease Prevention And Patient Education Through A Collaborative, Multidisciplinary Approach
An initiative of Dr. Greg Cooper and Dr. Carolyn Brown, the Bancroft Family Health Team (BFHT) is intimately connected with the community, and has always steered towards a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to health care.
A registered charity, made up of a mixed board of health care providers and Hastings County residents, the entire town benefits from a diverse group of medical and community experts who are better able to make informed and balanced decisions.
Physicians further contribute to the community by providing ER, Chief of Staff, coroner and long term care (including Hospice and housecall) services; rural health, LHIN and hospital committee participation; as well as supporting and developing local educational resources (including Public Health and Sexual Health), health promotion events, Chronic Disease Management Programs, and specialist clinics.
Specialist healthcare can be accessed in town each month, or supported remotely via the Ontario Telemedicine Network (an innovative system that uses two-way videoconferencing between doctor and patient) giving patients the freedom to manage their health closer to home.
Collaboration In Business For Bancroft:
The Bancroft Community Family Health Team’s sound financial structure, managed by Sandra McGrath (Chartered Accountant), allows for continual service expansion to accommodate an ever-growing roster of patients and physicians. In fact, the team of Allied Health Professionals quickly outgrew their first location (Billa Street) and built a state-of-the-art facility (next door to the North Hastings Hospital, for the convenience of doctors and patients) in 2013, adding another positive element to the Bancroft community, such as stimulated local business growth, weekend clinics and extended hours.
