The Morton Medical Centre

The Morton Medical Centre, located in the community of Lakefield, Ontario, is managed by a Board of Directors as a not for profit incorporated facility. The Centre offers primary healthcare to both residents of the local area and seasonal visitors to the Kawarthas. There is no walk-in Clinic at the Morton Medical Centre.

There are three components to the care available at the centre:

  • Permanent Primary Health Care provided by a team of family doctors who are part of the Chemong Family Health Organization;
  • Allied Professional Healthcare Specialists: Members of the community can receive services at the Lakefield Physiotherapy and Foot Health Clinic.
