VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 20, 2021 / EMPOWER CLINICS INC. (CSE:CBDT)(Frankfurt:8EC)(OTCQB:EPWCF) (“Empower” or the “Company“) an integrated healthcare company – serving patients through medical centers, telemedicine platforms, a medical device company, and a high complexity medical diagnostics laboratory – is pleased to announce the opening of its next The Medi-Collective (“TMC“) clinic in Kitchener, Ontario.
The 2,500 square feet location, which is co-located with a Rexall pharmacy, will offer family medicine, internal medicine and paramedical services such as chiropractor, physiotherapy, registered massage therapy and custom bracing orthotics. As of today, the clinic is accepting new patients. There are currently two family doctors and one internal medicine specialist with plans to hire additional physicians and support staff in the coming months.
