Toronto, ON (March 9, 2017) – Healthy employees are smart for business. Medcan lives by this motto, and it pays off: for the 7th year in a row Medcan is pleased to have been chosen as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies by Deloitte, achieving a coveted “Platinum Club” status amongst a select group of Canadian companies that are courageous leaders in their markets. The Best Managed Companies recognizes excellence in Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over 15 million dollars annually.
Established in 1987, Medcan’s driving mission is to inspire clients to live well and improve their health and their lives through a collaborative approach. Medcan partners with clients, providing a wide range of experts – from physicians to fitness trainers to psychologists – helping them achieve optimal health and wellness to excel in all areas of their lives – physically, emotionally and mentally.
There are exciting things happening at Medcan that prove it truly is a leader in not only healthcare, but on the cutting edge of innovation. Much of this success can be attributed to how healthy Medcan is from the top down and the bottom up. Between 2005 and 2015 Medcan’s business increased tenfold, and in 2016 the Live Well, For Life mandate was launched, inspiring Medcan clients to think long-term, and inspiring businesses to follow suit. “These are interesting times, where CEOs are seeing that a healthy company is not simply about balance sheets – it is about providing meaningful balance between work and life for employees,” says Medcan CEO Shaun Francis. “Business health and personal health go hand-in-hand.”
Medcan knows a healthy lifestyle is a collaboration, a partnership helping clients turn knowledge into action. To achieve this, Medcan provides a thorough health assessment and specialized testing to uncover susceptibility to certain diseases along with access to Canada’s leading experts – from physicians to genetic counselors to dietitians to psychologists. Medcan helps clients chart their path towards a healthy, vibrant life – because doing it alone can be a struggle. Medcan inspires businesses to see that healthy employees are pivotal to business health.
Medcan CEO Shaun Francis is available for interviews to talk about the honour of receiving the platinum award for Canada’s Best Managed Company, as well how CEOs can run a healthy business with healthy employees – thereby reducing overall benefits costs and increasing productivity.
Medcan provides organizations and individuals with services that inspire them to live well through achieving their very best health – in both body and mind.
