Health Access Taylor-Massey
Health Access Taylor-Massey (HATM) is a healthcare, community and social services centre located in Crescent Town. We offer connections to services and resources, including COVID-19 supports, to people who live in the Taylor-Massey neighbourhood and surrounding areas.
Our goal is to improve the health and well-being of local residents by making it easier for people to find the care they need in one place that is close to home. Our diverse team of healthcare providers includes family doctors, nurses, mental health counsellors, a resource navigator and others.
Our services are free. Many services can be accessed without a health card, medical referral or appointment. Language interpretation is available by request. Our team also speaks languages like Arabic, Cantonese, Dari, Farsi, Hindi, Mandarin, Pashto, Tagalog and Urdu.
We continue to work with local residents so we can add or adjust services based on community feedback. We encourage you to visit this page for updates.
HATM is part of a larger network of care that ETHP is developing in Taylor-Massey, which aims to better connect local residents with the healthcare and social services they need closer to home, including team-based primary care (family doctors, nurse practitioners and others), home care, community care and more.

Addressing health inequities
Health Access Taylor-Massey emerged from the Taylor-Massey Healthy Communities Network Project, which ETHP led from December 2020 to March 2021.
The project found that the Taylor-Massey neighbourhood and surrounding areas would benefit from a collaborative care planning and delivery model where providers and community members work together to help ensure local residents can get the care they need at the right time in a place that is close to home.
