The idea of establishing Jack Nathan Health started when the founder had a vision of bringing medical clinics directly to patients. “It is common for people to search for localized healthcare services, which aren’t traditionally centralized or even easily accessible. As a result, multiple commutes are needed in a single day between physician appointments, filling prescriptions, and purchasing other support aids. Our idea was to change the model and create a new standard in healthcare services with convenience at its core,” said George Barakat, Co-Founder, CEO & Chairman of Jack Nathan Health.
Mr. Barakat took this new approach to Walmart– he had a longstanding relationship the global retailer who immediately recognized the power of this concept. What started out as two clinics has morphed into 76 in Walmart locations across six provinces in Canada today, with another 50 set to open through Walmart in Mexico.
Canadian owned and operated since 2006, Jack Nathan Health is fulfilling its mission to create a patient-centric experience. That mantra is reflected in all aspects of Jack Nathan Health’s offering. Barrier-free entrances ensure smooth access into facilities for people with mobility challenges, once inside patients can shop at Walmart for needed supplies and an electronic paddle will notify them when appointments begin, and Jack Nathan Health also incorporates telemedicine serves for convenient physician scheduling.
After months of research and evaluating of the fastest-growing technology companies, Jack Nathan Health has been recognized as one of the 50 Best Companies by The CEO Views based on its services and business plans.
