To improve the quality of life for West Lincoln area residents by expanding and improving the primary care resources available to the community, with an emphasis on patient-centered programs and services that address the most complex and prevalent patient needs.

Our Values…

The Smithville Medical Centre Family Health Team has developed a primary care practice that is founded on a set of values that we believe will sustain us as we work to fulfill our mission and realize our vision:

Commitment

  • To embrace a common goal of patient wellness.
  • To uphold the standards of patient confidentiality at all times.
  • To maintain a high level of respect for patient care and for our work place.

Teamwork

  • We are committed to creating a work environment that is sustainable and satisfying for all members of our team, personally and professionally.
  • We embrace the idea of teamwork at all levels regardless of designation or seniority and work towards a mutually supportive environment.
  • We recognize that our patients are an active part of this team of health providers and that we all work together to prevent and reduce the impact of disease.

Empowerment

  • As a team, we strive to be there for our patients through their full life continuum.
  • We strive to focus on, and be responsive to, the needs of our patients and their families and provide flexibility and adaptability to meet those needs.
  • We strive to be advocates with regards to resources both for patients as individuals and the community as a whole.
  • We encourage a learning community for ourselves as well as welcoming residents/medical students.
