Department of Family and Community Medicine and St. Michael’s Academic Family Health Team



Effective Monday March 23, 2020

The weekday hours of operation for the St. Michael's Family Health Team (FHT) will be 9 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.

The FHT evening walk-in urgent care clinics will be closed until further notice. After 5 p.m., patients can call 416-864-5431 to speak with the family medicine resident doctor on call.  

Patients who have scheduled evening clinics with their regular doctor should be aware that these appointments will now be converted to phone visits and should expect to receive a phone call from their physician sometime during the evening in which the appointment is scheduled. Routine or non-essential appointments may be rescheduled to a later date. We appreciate your understanding.

COVID-19 update for family health team patients

In an effort to reduce risk to yourself and the public, the St. Michael’s Hospital Academic Family Health Team is reducing office visits. As recommended by the Ontario Medical Association, starting today we are changing most appointments to over the phone or virtual visits. Please do not come to the clinic unless you have a pre-booked appointment.

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, starting immediately, we will be rescheduling all non-urgent in-person patient appointments until further notice. To continue to provide the best possible care to our patients, we will be offering virtual care visits such as telephone appointments and video visits (eVisits) to patients to address their health concerns.

Family Health Team (FHT) visitor guideline

Due to increasing COVID-19 community transmission and recommendations from the Ministry of Health we are limiting visitors at the FHT.  If you are a patient and are coming in to the clinic, we are only allowing people described below to come with the patient:

  • A caregiver
  • A support worker
  • One parent/guardian for patients under the age of 16
  •  A support person helping with language barrier

All other people will not be allowed to come with the patient to their clinic visit.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.  This decision was made to slow the spread of the virus and follow social distancing practices.
