QSFHT is also a proud partner in the recently announced Brampton/Etobicoke and Area Ontario Health Team (OHT), one of the first wave of Ontario Health Teams which will focus on creating an integrated care hub as part of the vision, which will make it easier for patients, caregivers and providers to access health and social services, care navigation and co-ordination of care.

QSFHT provides comprehensive primary health care for more than 30,000 patients through a group of 19 dedicated physicians working in partnership with a group of interdisciplinary professionals including Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Social Workers, Dieticians, a Pharmacist, an Occupational Therapist and a Chiropodist. QSFHT works in partnership with the Queen Square Doctors Family Health Organization which is committed to serving the local community through the delivery of high-quality medical care and maintaining access to a full range of services and timely care as well as being a leader in the implementation of best clinical practice and the education of family practice residents.
