We started this company because we believe that those gaps need to be filled. But we believe it’s very important that they are not filled by companies run by those who do not come from the health care profession – rather companies run by nurses and other health care staff who will defend our public system even while helping fill the gaps that exist in that system. We want this to be a company where patient care comes before profit and above all the dream of quality health care for all is maintained.
We are a team of health care professionals who are fierce supporters of the belief that free universal health care is a right for all. At the same time, we believe that any universal health care system is not perfect – there are gaps – and our system here is no exception. Whether that gap is a patient that waits too long, or a nurse that cannot spend enough time with each patient because of being short-staffed, there are gaps in the system.
Who We Are
We’re a small team of nurses and health care admin specialists who believe that although our health care system is the best in the world, it does not always offer everything people need when they are making choices about how they would like to age.
We believe in building a company that provides the extra services those people need but in a way that stays true to the ideals that make Canada’s health care system so great.
