TORONTO, ONTARIO, November 30, 2021 – NeuPath Health Inc. (TSXV:NPTH), (“NeuPath” or the “Company”), owner and operator of a network of clinics delivering category-leading chronic pain treatment, today announced its wholly-owned subsidiary, HealthPointe Medical Centres Ltd. (“HealthPointe”), has entered into a partnership with Central Alberta Orthopedics (“CAO”), a leading provider of multidisciplinary care in musculoskeletal trauma and reconstructive surgery, to open an interdisciplinary pain institute in Red Deer, Alberta. The clinic is expected to be open to patients in May 2022 and ownership of the newly formed corporation is split 50/50 between HealthPointe and CAO.
“The journey for patients with musculoskeletal conditions usually involves requisitions for x-rays or MRIs, prescriptions for pain killers, referrals to physical therapists, and referrals to specialist physicians. Patients bounce around between each of these pathways, which can go on for years in some cases,” stated Grant Connelly, CEO of NeuPath. “This approach can also create unnecessary strain on the healthcare system. Given the unprecedented backlog for medical procedures created by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical that we identify solutions that reduce strain on the healthcare system and provide quicker access to the most appropriate care for patients. We believe working collaboratively with talented and respected groups like Central Alberta Orthopedics has the potential to improve access to care, shorten wait times, and produce better outcomes for patients, while also benefitting the broader healthcare system.”
