Establishment of Canadian Medical Care
In 1998, MUDr. Barbara Taušová, MBA, established the Canadian Medical Care clinic. The clinic located at the Veleslavín chateau had four practices, five doctors, one nurse and treated approximately 25 patients each day. "The beginnings of Canadian Medical reach back to 1995. Back then, doctors from Toronto arrived to Prague and established a small clinic which was operated in line with Canadian standards, asking me to cooperate with them. Their approach differed in the extent of competencies of general practitioners, their communication abilities or in the ways in which they treated their patients and colleagues. Eventually, these doctors returned home to Canada, but I decided that I wanted to continue in what we began together, establishing Canadian Medical Care, which was inspired by my Canadian colleagues' approach" recalls founder MUDr. Barbara Taušová, MBA.
Opening of The Park clinic
In 2005, we employed approximately 30 doctors, had eight practices and several thousand patients. To improve access to medical care, we opened a new branch in Prague 4, further expanding the available number of specializations.
Expansion of The Park clinic
In 2010, we expanded the clinic at The Park by adding 4 further practices.
Entry of EUC Group
In 2011, we became a part of the EUC Group, which to date represents the largest private provider of outpatient care in the Czech Republic.
In 2011, as the first private outpatient facility, we gained a quality certificate from the Czech Accreditation Committee.
Canadian Medical Pharmacy
We opened a new, large and beautiful pharmacy at The Park.
Opening of the AVIATICA branch
In 2017, the AVIATICA clinic opened with three practices as well as the Center of Special Care for Children.
In 2017, we rebranded and Canadian Medical Care became simply Canadian Medical.
WALTER clinic with inpatient care services
The opening of the WALTER clinic with two surgery rooms significantly expanded the scope of our services. We carry out planned and unplanned procedures along with the associated inpatient care services at the quality our clients expect.
Opening of the HADOVKA clinic
In 2018, we opened the Hadovka clinic which also houses our Mental Health Center, offering psychiatric and psychotherapeutic services.
Relocation into the AFI Vokovice building
In the fall of 2018, the Veleslavín clinic has relocated into the newly constructed AFI Vokovice building. The historical building of the chateau where CM has been operating for the past 20 years no longer met the growing requirements and expectations of modern medical care.
