Shoppers Drug Mart has opened its first managed medical clinic in Toronto. Owned and operated by Shoppers Drug Mart, the Health Clinic by Shoppers is a primary care and family practice clinic, providing patients with one-stop access to medical services and trusted advice.
The clinic is the first of three expected to open over the next year in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
"We know Canadians want and need more from their primary care. The world changed quickly and dramatically this year, highlighting the need for more accessible healthcare options for patients – whether that means extended hours and more convenient locations for in-person services, or virtual care services for all patients including those who don't currently have access to a family physician," says Jeff Leger, president, Shoppers Drug Mart. "The Health Clinic by Shoppers combines convenience and technology in a way that is increasingly relevant to Canadians looking for health and wellness support."
As Shoppers Drug Mart expands its range of healthcare services, the company assembled a team of individuals with extensive experience in health clinic operations and management, and established a Physician Advisory Board to support the design and implementation of the new health clinic model.
