About the West Champlain Family Health Team

The West Champlain Family Health Team (WCFHT) consists of a group of interdisciplinary health care providers and administrative staff who support the family physicians of a Family Health Organization (FHO), working collaboratively to provide a broad spectrum of primary health care services to rostered patients of Pembroke and surrounding areas referred to as West Champlain.

Governance

As a Family Health Team (FHT) we are registered as a not for profit corporation with a Board of Directors that is responsible for providing governance and oversight of the FHT. Oversight ensures the ongoing success of the organization and ensures that the FHT is meeting all the legislative requirements of a not for profit corporation.  With a Mixed Governance Model, the Board is made up of both physicians that work or have worked with a FHT, as well as community members.  The result of this Mixed Governance Model is a Board that is well informed on best practice within the healthcare system, and well connected with the community.
