Canon partners with company to launch Ontario clinics
June 15, 2022
OTTAWA – The Harley Street Healthcare Group Canada (HSHG) and Canon Medical Systems Canada have partnered to launch a group of innovative community diagnostic centres across the province of Ontario. The first of these “Centres of Excellence” is to be located in Ottawa. The Centres of Excellence will endeavour to improve health outcomes by diagnosing health conditions earlier, faster and more accurately.
These centres will bring diagnostic solutions closer to home, helping the public healthcare system serve communities more efficiently with improved medical results.
For its part, Canon Medical leverages over 100 years in healthcare innovations with a full range of diagnostic medical imaging solutions including: CT, MRI, Molecular Imaging, Angiography, X-Ray, Ultrasound, and Healthcare Informatics.
This approach is coupled with deep learning technologies that deliver quality, insight, and value across the entire care pathway.
The partnership plans to launch five centres in Ontario within the next two years. The first of its kind will be located at 1785 Alta Vista Drive in Ottawa, with the plan to have another centre in Brampton, Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area by early next year. Canon and HSHG are seeking to have the first centre open to the public before the end of December 2022.
HSHG, with its unique network of established Centre of Excellence facilities for patient care across cities in England, is bringing this expertise to Canada.
“HSHG Canada firmly believes that an industrial approach to healthcare is no longer fit for purpose. Healthcare needs to transform from a sick care system that continues to carry a heavy cost burden on the society and the public health system to a system that is proactively engaged in keeping people healthy over the course of their lifetime,” said Sanjeev Kumar (pictured), president, Harley Street Group.
“Together, we are focused to make a difference in Ontario’s healthcare by increasing the capacity in the diagnostic space by efficiently investing in new facilities that provide the latest state-of-the-art medical imaging solutions.”
The development of these centres will collaborate closely with the existing public healthcare systems in Ontario to help reduce pressure on acute hospital sites. Alliances will be created with the local hospitals to ensure key demands of the community are met and efficiencies between the clinics and the healthcare system are augmented.
“This embodies Canon Medical’s Made for Life philosophy as it addresses the challenges of clinical practice with the outcome of improved patient care,” said Jens Dettmann, president, Canon Medical Systems Canada.
