VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 11, 2021 / EMPOWER CLINICS INC.

"Our national clinic expansion strategy will provide enhanced access to healthcare for millions of Canadians. We continue to make meaningful strides across our network with various Kai Care testing partnerships and its recent expansion allowing for greater volume and diversification of services.

Chairman & CEO Mr. McAuley added, "I simply want to say that our Canadian health centre development plan has never been in doubt for us, from the moment we announced the strategy. Working so closely on a plan with pharmacy organizations takes time to materialize, it requires a collective effort with all constituents, but as everyone knows, we have not been idle, we have not been complacent, we have been diligent, respectful and focused on building a long-term strategy. I am so impressed with our business development team and their recruitment of medical doctors to date, that will serve so many communities and neighbourhoods. We seem to be building a collective of healthcare centers, a collective of medical professionals, a collective of knowledge and expertise, focused on the health outcomes of people in the markets we serve."


Empower Clinics recently finalized the acquisition of leading Canadian diabetic service manufacturing company MediSure. With over $1.9M in revenue for 2020, 50,000 end users and presence in over 4,000 Canadian pharmacies, MediSure represents a highly valuable asset for the Empower Network.


Empower Clinics has signed nine partnership agreements in 2021 with leading companies across Canada and the United States. Each partnership leverages various strengths of the Empower Clinics network. The endeavours include:

Signed partnership to offer COVID-19 testing on a long-term basis for the Dallas Market Centre
Signed partnership for select clinics to offer the MedX DermSecure screening platform
Signed referral agreement with major Canadian airline for Kai Care COVID testing
Signed partnered with Loop Insights to augment COVID mitigation efforts through testing

Empower Clinics has had a tremendous year of growth that has translated to promising fiscal results. A 58% year-over-year growth and a zero cash loss in 2020 set Empower up to make significant strides in 2021. Empower yielded over $2.5M of revenue in Q1 2021, a 258% growth compared to 2020.

Corporate Talent

Along with tremendous fiscal growth, Empower Clinics is looking to elevate its corporate leadership team and partnerships. Recently retained global executive recruiting firm Korn Ferry has started searching for a new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). An immediate priority for the new executive will be an in-depth review of current financial and audit operations, with the express intent to make recommendations to affect positive change on current practices and partnerships.
