Welcome!

Woodbine Family Health Team (WFHT) is established in Rexdale to provide our community with direct and timely access to high-quality multidisciplinary healthcare services at more convenient hours.

This is a message from all of us here at Woodbine FHT that our clinic will continue to provide essential services to our patients during this outbreak. 
COVID-19 is placing stress on Canada's public health system. Our clinic is starting to offer virtual care to make sure that we can continue to care for our patients safely and effectively. This means that we will be using video and audio technologies for some patient visits rather than asking all patients to come into our office. We can discuss your test results, address minor complaints, order tests or send prescriptions to your pharmacy. Some health concerns can be addressed with virtual care alone, but in some cases your doctor may ask you to visit a hospital or other health care facility if necessary, for a physical examination.
Your doctors and staff are available to you from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. Saturdays 9 am to 1pm. Our nurses, counselors and dietician will continue to provide their services virtually as well.
Please contact us through the following means:
Phone: (416) 342-5140

Our unique approach brings together a team of health professionals including:

  • Family Physicians
  • Registered Nurses
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Mental Health Counsellors
  • Registered Dietitians, and
  • Pharmacist

All collaborating under one roof to provide a full range of comprehensive and timely care.

NOTICE TO ALL PATIENTS

Due to the current COVID19 situation, we are limiting in-person patient visits in order to ensure the safety of everyone at the clinic and in our community. Please be patient with us as we are doing our best to ensure the safety of everyone. During this time, preventing disease transmission will be best achieved through the use of self-isolation. Please call the clinic at 416-342-5140 for detailed instructions regarding visits with your primary care provider. We will return to our normal office operations once the COVID19 situation has been resolved. Thank you for your patience. 

To rapidly expand screening and ease pressures on hospital emergency departments, a number of dedicated assessment centres have been established across Toronto. Woodbine FHT is not an assessment centre and testing is not provided at WFHT office. To avoid the spread of infection, do not go to a clinic or hospital without calling ahead first and be ready to self-isolate if necessary
