Large medical clinic sets up in shopping mall
July 21, 2021
MONTREAL – ELNA Medical, the largest network of medical clinics in Canada, and Cominar, a major real estate investment trust, have announced the opening of a new medical complex at Rockland Centre in the Town of Mount Royal (Quebec), by end of 2021.
The result of a first-ever agreement between ELNA and Cominar, the new healthcare facility will occupy 24,000 square feet in the shopping centre, serving the entire local community using leading-edge medical technology.
It will include a family medicine group (FMG), urgent care, several specialty medical services with appointments covered by the RAMQ, as well as lab services, a private corporate medicine clinic, and esthetics and physical therapy clinics.
As with other ELNA Medical operations, in-home and telemedicine services will also be available.
This new complex will maintain ELNA Medical’s signature experience of easy and timely access to quality care, including preventive and personalized medicine, while leveraging advanced technology.
“The addition of this new clinic to the ELNA network offers a greater range of high-quality care services to populations in the vicinity of Rockland Centre, in an ultra-modern and high-tech setting,” said Laurent Amram, president and founder of ELNA Medical.
“Situating a medical complex within in a shopping centre is a thoroughly innovative concept. As there is a tendency today for such venues to redefine themselves, we are very proud to participate in our own way to a transformation that is beneficial for the population.”
“We’re excited to bring ELNA Medical and Rockland Centre together. ELNA is Canada’s largest network of primary and specialty healthcare clinics,” said Sébastien Dubois, vice president, leasing – retail at Cominar. “We are certain that this new offering within Rockland Centre will enhance our guest experience while ensuring another successful operation for ELNA Medical in Quebec.”
“This new medical complex will definitely be a highlight of our work to diversify use and turn our shopping centres into everyday destinations. In fact, this additional service will give more than 25,000 visitors a year the opportunity to take advantage of other services, retailers and restaurants at Rockland Centre.”
The new clinic will join ELNA’s 56 other facilities across Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, where 800 professionals provide in-person and telemedicine care to more than 1 million Canadians and 1,500 organizations every year.
