Our History

In 2008, a Community Health Committee was formed by the municipality to look at health care in the community and what could be done to ensure services for the future. The committee concluded that an application for a Family Health Team would be submitted when the Ministry of Health invited same. This was done in July of 2009 and approved in December the same year.

In Northbrook, the Family Health Team moved into the former quarters of the Northbrook Medical Centre, 12357 - Highway 41, on November 1, 2010.

Addington Highlands Township secured the abandoned public school in Denbigh for this project, and completed the renovations needed to house the Denbigh satellite of the Family Health Team which  moved into the new quarters on October 17, 2011.

Lakelands Family Health Team will be an invaluable service to Northbrook and Denbigh  area, as it hosts a growing population of aging and retired residents.
