New Healthcare Clinics to help Canadians manage their weight and the risks of chronic disease selects Edmonton for its first opening
EDMONTON, April 21, 2016 /CNW/ - Announcing Pure Clinics. A new concept in healthcare for Canadians who want to take charge of their weight and the risks of chronic conditions using evidence based medical approach.
"Pure Clinics can build a better, healthier Canada by filling an important gap in our healthcare system. We're here to help Canadians manage their weight and the risks associated with chronic conditions in a new way. In the right way, using a pure 100% evidenced based medical approach." said Alex Hyssen, Chief Operating Officer, Pure Clinics.
This is a pressing and urgent problem as 70% of Canadians are at risk of developing a chronic disease. How real is the need to manage or prevent chronic disease? Diabetes and pre-diabetes affects 10 million Canadians, 5.3 million Canadians have high blood pressure and over 14 million Canadians have been identified as either overweight or obese. Early diagnosis and preventative treatments are needed to stop and reverse these numbers – that's where Pure Clinics come in.
Alex Hyssen went on to say; "The concept behind Pure Clinics all started when we asked ourselves - there must be a way to right this situation. Then we set about developing what it would take to realize that dream. Through consultations with medical professionals and an understanding of the latest in diagnostic technology we identified a way to create Canada's first pure 100% evidenced based medical approach to weight management and the reversal of chronic conditions. That's exactly what it would take to show Canadians what really works."
The Pure Clinics difference utilizes advanced diagnostics, and technology to assess and diagnose a patient's risk factors and then provides the active ongoing monitoring and support from a Pure Clinics team of healthcare professionals made up of a Nurse Practitioner, Registered Dietitian and a Clinical Social Worker (Behavioural Coach) to help patients take control of their health.
"At Pure Clinics, we take a truly personal approach to helping our patients manage their weight and the risks of chronic disease. Each plan is tailored to each patient. After all, we're all different, so every plan should be unique." said Mr. Hyssen.
Pure Clinics' evidence-based medical approach begins with a two week comprehensive assessment to gather detailed diagnostics from a combination of medical history and advanced medical screening such as metabolic testing.
A key aspect of the Pure Clinics approach will be the brand's ability and intent to collaborate with a patient's principal physician whenever possible and appropriate.
"Because of our evidence-based medical approach, and because our staff are accredited and experienced healthcare professionals, we are looking forward to a productive and cordial collaboration with a patient's primary physician. Managing a chronic condition is not a one-stop affair, it's a disciplined process that takes time and knowledge. We take the time, share our knowledge and empower our patients to be in the driver seat. Our program offers patients the support they need to succeed— between check ups and for the long term," added Alex Hyssen.
