The weekday hours of operation for the St. Michael's Family Health Team (FHT) will be 9 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.

Routine or non-essential appointments may be rescheduled to a later date.

  • A caregiver
  • A support worker
  • One parent/guardian for patients under the age of 16

All other people will not be allowed to come with the patient to their clinic visit.
