The Baawaating Family Health Team Clinic

Baawaating Family Health Team  is an Indigenous Primary Care Clinic supported by the Ministry of Health  & Long Term Care that  serves  the Indigenous and Non Indigenous populations of Sault  Ste Marie and local catchment area.  The team functions to provide comprehensive primary care services based on the unique needs and health outcomes of the population that we serve.

The team is spearheaded  by our physician lead,  a second  physician  and further supported by our  nurse practitioner.  Our lead  physician  in particular,  offers interpretive and linguistic  service in our Indigenous Ojibway language .  The  health care providers are supported by two health receptionists and a specialized billing clerk. Our nursing staff who consist of an RN and RPN, provide up front assessments and collaborate care pathways with our practitioners to ensure  timely and effective, client centered health outcomes. 

Our interdisciplinary team functions to address the complex needs of our specific population for the following:  chronic disease, episodic care, mental health, child, maternal &  family health, traditional health including complex care for clients with multiple co-morbidities.   

The interdisciplinary team consists of a social worker, dietician, occupational therapist, pharmacist and traditional healer.

We also offer specialty  services of a psychiatrist through the local  provincial hospital in Sault Ste. Marie to address  specific mental  health  client health needs  in collaboration with our health team.

Incorporating all aspects of a preventative and restorative health within the continuum of care is the foundation of our family centered care focus while supporting a model of Indigenous culture and preservation.

As an Indigenous FHT, we are committed to providing a culturally sensitive client atmosphere, where our  clients partake in meaningful conversations with our staff and about their care.  This is evidenced by a performance measure/indicator in our Quality Improvement Plan designed to meet  specific targets to improve our patient care experience and health outcomes.
