What is an executive medical?
An executive medical is a comprehensive health assessment that screens for the early detection of diseases like diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Usually reserved for executives in large firms, executive medicals help to keep the most valued employees healthy and active. It will usually consist of heart function tests, lung function tests, nutritional assessments, bone density, vision and hearing screening, a number of blood and urine tests along with a detailed examination from a physician. Most executive medicals result in an easy to read executive summary that the client can then reference their full personal health status.
Why should you have an executive medical?
Many people have found that an annual physical with their family doctor is not a productive use of their time. The “tap on the knee and blood test” that many of us have experienced does not really provide an adequate assessment of our current health status. Furthermore, many diseases are silent and provide little to no symptoms. Early detection saves lives and can improve outcomes. A full comprehensive annual health assessment allows the client to take a proactive approach to their health.
Why should you choose Medpoint?
The Medpoint Health Care Centre has taken executive level health care in a new direction. While we work with over 70 corporate firms who trust Medpoint with their executives’ health, the majority of our clients come to us directly from the general public. Our goal was to make executive level health care affordable to everyone. While executive physicals can cost upwards of $3000 in major centres like Ottawa and Toronto, the cost at Medpoint is substantially less. While the testing is similar and in many cases more comprehensive than in other centres Medpoint’s price allows corporations to offer executive health programs to more key employees than ever before.
In addition to comprehensive health screening, Medpoint will coordinate any referrals to specialists or additional diagnostic testing that our physicians feel is medically indicated. Our network of specialists and navigator service provides fast access to top doctors in their field. Finally Medpoint already has a number of specialists right on site (cardiology, dermatology, gynecology, internal medicine, radiology, surgery and psychiatry), making Medpoint a one stop destination for your health.
Two Options for Executive Medicals:
This is our traditional 3 hour medical. It is a very comprehensive screening tool to assess the health of your top people. While this does not include as many tests as the platinum medical, (abdominal ultrasound, Stress Test, echocardiogram) these tests can be acquired quickly (days) through the OHIP system if deemed medically indicated. Our professional staff will coordinate these follow up tests on behalf of our clients.
The new Medpoint Platinum medical is arguably the most comprehensive medical in Canada. Medpoint is the only executive health care centre that includes an echocardiogram, Stress Test, abdominal ultrasound with a the BodPod, mole mapping and full gait analysis. This medical is designed for the maximum level of testing including a very detailed and exhaustive blood panel.
