VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 31, 2021 / EMPOWER CLINICS INC. (CSE:CBDT)(FRA:8EC)(OTCQB:EPWCF) ("Empower" or the "Company") an integrated healthcare company - serving patients through medical centers, telemedicine platforms, a medical device company, and a high complexity medical diagnostics laboratory - is pleased to open its next The Medi-Collective ("TMC") clinic location in London, Ontario. As of today, the clinic is accepting new patients.
The fully renovated 3,400 square foot location will offer family medicine, teledermatology and paramedical services such as chiropractor, physiotherapy, registered massage therapy and custom bracing orthotics.

Heading into 2022 we're focused on completing the construction and acquisition of additional locations, expanding our specialist service offerings, and increasing the number of patients serviced by TMC."
"TMC's first London location is an impressive facility that we're proud to bring to the community," added Dr. Jordan Rabinowitz and Dr. Aviv Tsimerman. "Now more than ever Canadians need access to convenient, high-quality healthcare. TMC goes beyond meeting this need by providing a truly integrated, localized healthcare experience."
