Women's College Hospital

In 1956, we established the Department of Family Practice with a unique focus on women's health.

Today, we serve tens of thousand of patients every year - throughout their lives and across generations.

Our Family Practice Health Centre is a bustling primary care centre - one of Ontario's largest - that serves people of all ages and life stages. Amazingly, this is often where three generations of family come for their medical care.

Still, our focus on women's health lives on. Eighty per cent of our patients and 75 per cent of our physicians and staff are female.

But, whether they are a woman, man or child, this is a place where patients are cared for in a different way. Our Academic Family Health Team gives patients access to not only their family doctor, but to an interprofessional team that consists of nurse practitioners, family-practice nurses, dietitians, social workers, pharmacists, and medical residents.

And while we'll continue to grow, one thing will remain the same: our commitment to delivery the best and most compassionate care to women and their families.
