Our history

1998

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.

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.
