Algonquin College's family health team bid gets support from city councillors

August 17, 2010

A pair of Ottawa city councillors will ask the municipality to write to the Ontario government requesting it approve Algonquin College's application to become home to one of the province's newest Family Health Teams. With a growing student population at the college and large number of seniors in the wards they represent, the councillors say, Algonquin offers an ideal location for a family health clinic. College president Robert Gillett says with their support, the 2 councillors "recognize the need for increased and improved healthcare for students, seniors, and the entire Centrepointe community."
