Our vision

The Interprofessional Care Team utilizes a collaborative, community based approach to provide care where patients need it;  these locations may include their physician's office or a hub in their local neighbourhood.

Our IPCT members provide health care support services to patients in the North West Mississauga area with a special focus on:

  • individuals with chronic and complex health conditions
  • assistance with transitioning back to the community after hospitalization
  • individuals/families lacking a primary care provider/family physician
  • minimizing ER visits and readmissions
