Empower Clinics Inc (CSE:CBDT) (OTCMKTS:EPWCF) revealed Tuesday that the number of patients visiting its clinics in January 2020 nearly tripled to 1,750, compared to 607 patients in the same month a year earlier.
Empower, which acquired the physician-staffed Sun Valley wellness clinics in May last year, said it continued to see the patient count in corporate clinics increase strongly.
In a statement, Empower Clinics CEO Steven McAuley noted that January patient volumes were strong, setting the stage for potentially record first-quarter patient visits,” that are focused on the patient experience.
“It’s a competitive advantage and I continue to be impressed with how our team members care for each and every patient they see," said McAuley.
"We are excited for our next franchise signings and the expansion of our product lines, adding to the in-clinic retail experience we are building," he added.
The company utilizes its technology platform to communicate closely with patients by text, email and call centers, ensuring appointments take place as planned.
As part of the company's continued expansion of its health and wellness clinic model, it has already set up retail CBD product sales in-clinic, and now has launched expanded physician-based services starting with key Arizona clinics.
The firm’s Sun Valley Health division has completed the build-out of its retail product counter and sales in its Tucson, Arizona location, to showcase its CBD product line with over 50 unique SKUs, said the company. Patients and customers can purchase product in-clinic, or online at www.sunvalleyhealth.com.
The Vancouver-based company is a leading operator of a network of wellness clinics throughout the US that are geared towards helping patients improve and protect their health through physician-recommended treatment options such as CBD.
The firm also produces a proprietary line of CBD-based products distributed throughout the US.
The company’s CBD is manufactured under the brand name Solievo, and the Sun Valley Health Clinics operate at nine locations in the US. It is the operator of an extraction facility in Oregon.
