About the Sunnybrook Academic Family Health Team

Focusing on innovation, the Sunnybrook Academic Family Health Team provides comprehensive, integrated care to patients with complex care needs. We work in collaboration with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, the Regional Geriatric Program, Community Partnerships and Linkages, and the University of Toronto Department of Family and Community Medicine.

Nestled within a large academic and research hospital with access to a wide specialist and diagnostic service base, our team services a community that is aging with higher rates of many chronic diseases than the Toronto Central LHIN and the Province of Ontario as a whole. We are uniquely positioned to advance the health of the community, especially patients living with complex diseases and functional limitations.

As an integrated and coordinated hub of care, we provide our catchment population with efficient, quality care that is patient-focused and congruent with patients' care goals. Our team remains committed to caring for patients and their families across the life cycle through collaborative teamwork, health promotion and prevention, system navigation with advanced access, mental health programs and chronic disease self-management.
