ScreenPro Security Inc. (CSE: SCRN) (OTCQB: SCRSF) ("ScreenPro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Concierge Medical Consultants Inc. ("Concierge"), launched personal home care services in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The Company plans to expand to the Vancouver area in the near future.
The personal home care service is a new healthcare solution tailored for seniors or those who are looking for at home care. Our team of healthcare professionals believe that urgent medical care doesn't have to happen in the clinic, it can happen at home. This new service brings accessible care to the patient's home and helps improve the patient's overall healthcare experience.
With the current state of the Canadian healthcare system and hospital wait times being at a record high, Canadian healthcare continues to be in crisis. Patient needs and healthcare services are in demand. Leveraging Concierge services to provide in-clinic and at home healthcare will help further expand the Company into the health care space, while providing solutions to patients who need timely care.
