(“Synergy”). As a result of this strategic purchase, Evergreen Pacific has added Synergy’s network of multi-disciplinary wellness centres, combining traditional medical pain management with allied health services, to the Evergreen Pacific group of companies, aligned with Evergreen Pacific’s focus on improved patient outcomes.
Dr. Ira Price, MD, FRCPC, and founder of Synergy Health Services, will serve as Medical Director of Evergreen Pacific’s Clinical Division. Dr. Price is a recognized leader in the clinical application of natural pain solutions and cannabinoid therapeutics.
Dr. Price commented, “Evergreen Pacific’s Buywell.com ecosystem serves a large and growing market of highly engaged health and wellness consumers and medical professionals across Canada. The integration of Synergy within the Buywell.com ecosystem is not only consistent with our shared passion for supporting access to clinical care, it enables us to focus on optimal patient outcomes and improved patient experiences. Synergy’s participation and leadership within Evergreen Pacific’s Clinical Division will benefit our patients in so many ways – from reducing clinical dependence on opioids, to providing a wider range of clinical solutions for the management of chronic pain.”
Heather Gray, co-founder of “Our Clinic“, a cutting-edge medical clinic focused on delivering tailored treatment plans combining traditional and alternative treatments and located in London, Ontario, has been appointed Director of Operations of Evergreen Pacific’s Clinical Division and will be responsible for overseeing its expansion across Canada. Ms. Gray added, “Patients and medical practitioners can now finally find affordable educational resources, treatment options and payment alternatives in one integrative care setting.”
Robert Wilson, CEO of Evergreen Pacific, added, “Today, consumers seek to make informed decisions regarding their medical practitioners, and treatment options. Canadians want access to the leading standards of clinical care. They also seek alternatives giving them more ways to afford treatment. That is why Evergreen Pacific has introduced the first guaranteed-issue extended healthcare coverage for individuals which includes cannabinoid therapeutic treatments.”
