November 30th, 2011
TORONTO – Primacy Management Inc., Canada's largest medical management firm, has opened a medical clinic at a new, landmark Loblaws supermarket at the historic Maple Leaf Gardens building in Toronto.
Primacy said Wednesday that the new walk-in clinic will offer a wide array of health care services, including sports medicine, casting and suturing seven days a week. Plans also call for the clinic to eventually house family doctors and specialists.
Also, physical therapy provider Physical Therapy One will be on site at the clinic to offer such health services including physiotherapy, chiropractic treatments and massage therapy.
Primacy clinics are home to over 450 physicians and other health care professionals. Primacy's growing network of clinics serve over 3 million Canadians annually in all 10 provinces.
Loblaws said its 85,000-square-foot supermarket at Maple Leaf Gardens brings a new paradigm to the food shopping experience while emphasizing health and wellness.
Besides a pharmacy, the store has a team devoted to well-being and ready to answer questions about health and diet. With an in-store dietitian, customers can get assistance in decoding and discerning food labels as well as plan healthier meals. There's also a 50-foot wall of vitamins and supplements, and the pharmacy offers blood pressure monitoring, diabetes risk assessment, a cardiovascular risk assessment and a food allergy management program.
