The Barrie Primary Care Campus at 370 Bayview Drive opened to great acclaim on November 21, 2016, with the ceremonial ribbon cutting performed by Barrie Mayor Jeff Lehman and The Honorable Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care.  Minister Hoskins praised the project, noting that it “looks at healthcare from the patient’s perspective providing care close to home in a coordinated fashion, as seamless as possible.” Remarks throughout the evening focused on the forward-thinking approach of developing a healthcare hub, including the new home for the Barrie and Community Family Health Team, to serve the rapidly growing community. “It’s an amazing day for healthcare in Barrie,” declared Mayor Jeff Lehman.

As part of the opening ceremony NorthWest Healthcare Properties made a foundational donation to the Family Health Team’s new Healthy Barrie initiative.
