Our Shared Mission
We are committed to providing comprehensive, team based primary health care in equal partnership with patients in Thunder Bay, to improve quality of life and foster overall health and wellbeing.
In 2007 the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (the Ministry) announced the creation of 25 Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics. To date, the 25 NPLCs are open and seeing patients in the following communities: Barrie, Belle River Township of Lakeshore, Belleville, Capreol, Essex, French River, Huntsville, Ingersoll, Kitchener, London, North Bay, Oro Station, Oshawa, Peterborough, Sarnia, Sault Ste Marie, Scarborough, South Glengarry, Smith Falls, Sutton, Thessalon, Thunder Bay, Toronto, West Parry Sound, White River and Thessalon.
Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics are a primary health care delivery model in which Nurse Practitioners are the lead providers of primary health care (Primary Care Provider). Through a collaborative practice approach which includes an interprofessional team with Registered Nurses, Registered Practical Nurses, Social Workers, Registered Dietitian, Pharmacist, and collaborating family physicians, Nurse Practitioners provide comprehensive, accessible, and coordinated family health care services to our patients.
Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinics improve the quality of care through enhanced health promotion, disease prevention and chronic disease management, as well as improve care co-ordination and navigation across the health care system at the local level.
