Shoppers Drug Mart is expanding its managed medical clinics - Health Clinic by Shoppers - to more cities across Ontario.
The managed health clinics are primary-care and family practice operations. Following the opening of the first four clinics in Toronto and Whitby, Shoppers plans to open three more locations, two in Ontario
Hosting a suite of family medicine services, the clinics aim to make healthcare more accessible for patients with extended operating hours and increased technology, such as online appointment booking and virtual care options.
"We know Canadians want and need more from their primary care. The world changed quickly and dramatically over the last year, highlighting the need for more accessible healthcare options for patients – including extended hours and more convenient locations for in-person services, and virtual care services for all patients including those who don't currently have a family physician," says Jeff Leger, president, Shoppers Drug Mart. " Since May 2020, our Toronto locations have been meeting those needs, through more than 20,000 patient visits. Bringing the Health Clinic to new markets will allow us to make healthcare more accessible for more Ontarians."
