Standards for Home Care

SETFHT’s own lead physician, Dr. Tia Pham, has been included in an Expert Advisory Group which aims to develop a framework for national principle-based standards for home care.  Along with the Canadian Home Care Association (CHCA) and a panel of fellow recognized home care leaders, Tia will be guiding the development of these standards to ensure consistent and equitable access to high quality home care services.  Wonderful work Tia!  Read more about the initiative here:


Dear Patients,

Due to the ongoing construction at Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) , parking has become very frustrating for our patients. We encourage all patients to give yourself extra time when traveling to appointments. We understand this is very inconvenient and has also been a disruption for our entire team. The construction plan at MGH is 4-7years, so we do not see this being resolved anytime soon.  We strongly recommend either taking TTC, taxi or have a friend or family member drop you to appointments.

Public Transit:

  • We are located just north of the Coxwell subway station.
  • The Coxwell subway station is located at 1568 Danforth Ave., between Greenwood and Woodbine along the Bloor-Danforth line.
  • At Coxwell subway station take the northbound bus (#70 or #70A) to Sammon Ave or Mortimer Ave – Buses are about every 9 minutes.

Sammon Avenue Visitor Lot 

7am – 6pm  - $3.00 20 minutes (max $15.00)


6pm – 7am $7.00 Flat Rate


MGH Emergency Parking Lot off Mortimer Avenue

Call for Patient Advisory Council Members

South East Toronto Family Health Team is committed to providing patient centered care in our community.  One way we are doing that is through our patient advisory committee.

What is a PAC? It is a committee made up of SETFHT patients who volunteer their valuable time to provide feedback to us to make us a better leading academic family health team.

How do we do this?  We meet as a committee approximately four times a year to hear your ideas, opinions, and experiences, we need your input!

Where we the Committee meet? Our advisory committee will meet at our 840 Coxwell Ave. Clinic location with a facilitator at a time that is convenient for ALL members.

This is an exciting opportunity for your voice to be heard and assist in making SETFHT a better team in order to improve the health of our community.

If you are interested in acting as a representative for your community, please send your full name, evening availability, telephone number, and email contact by:  July 15, 2018 to or call the administrative office at 416-423-8800 ext. 223.

As we value all of our patients, and their feedback, we will only be contacting a few individuals. We thank you for your interest in becoming a PAC representative, and in the South East Toronto Family Health Team

3 Cheers for Dr. Tirkos, Dr. Copeland & Dr. Godard!

SETFHT wishes to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of Dr. Sam Tirkos, Dr. Roarke Copeland & Dr. Stephanie Godard; recipients of the University of Toronto Department of Family & Community Medicine Quality & Innovation Program – PGY1 Impact Award.

Congratulations on this fantastic accomplishment and thanks for elevating SETFHT’s QI & Teaching efforts to reach even greater heights! 

Choosing Wisely

Are you taking a lot of medications or supplements? Perhaps you care for a family member who has more pills than you can name? Talk to your doctor, because more is not always better. By reducing unnecessary medications, it’s easier to stick to the meds you really need and you can avoid unnecessary side effects at the same time!
