A First in Quebec in Terms of Health Care Access for Retirees

Reseau Selection purchases the Complexe Medical Selection in Laval

LAVAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - May 2, 2008) - Reseau Selection, a network of residences for autonomous and semi-autonomous seniors, has announced today a first in Quebec in terms of health care access for retirees. The company has purchased a medical complex located in the Sainte-Dorothee area of Laval. Reseau Selection's 3,000 residents will now have access to specialists through a new service being offered at the Complexe Medical Selection.

"The well-being, security and comfort of our clients have always been at the heart of our priorities. This investment project representing between 7 and 8 million dollars allows us to offer a new range of services and commodities that will better meet the growing need of our clients," explains Mr. Real Bouclin, President of Reseau Selection.

A First in Quebec

This is a first in terms of health care services for autonomous and semi-autonomous seniors; at the Complexe Medical Selection, certain time slots are reserved for the residents. These time periods will facilitate access to specialists working at the Complexe Medical Selection. These specialists (allergists, cardiologists, dermatologists, gastroenterologists, audioprosthetists, etc.) operate within the Quebec health care insurance system. Reseau Selection is the only residence network in the industry to offer such service to its clients.

Promptness, facilitation and accessibility constitute Reseau Selection's main priorities. A dedicated service will manage the appointments for all Reseau Selection residences. A unique telephone number will allow the residences' nursing personnel to quickly make an appointment with one of the clinic's specialists, upon referral from the residence's general practitioner or the resident's family physician. The client simply needs to contact the nursing personnel, who will make all the arrangements.

"We are aware that within the existing network, senior citizens are often rerouted to the emergency room in order to get an appointment with a specialist. This can be difficult for some seniors who have a hard time getting around. By being involved directly in health care access for our residences' seniors, we support the system by arranging for our clients' appointments with specialists, thereby limiting emergency room visits. We help our clients through all the steps of consultation, thus minimizing the impact on their daily lives," adds Mr. Bouclin.

Besides gaining easier access to the Complexe Medical Selection specialists, the residents will be able to consult the musculoskeletal specialists of the Centre de medecine sportive de Laval and take advantage of the services available at the Gamma-Dynacare private lab.

This major project is made possible through a partnership with the Groupe Sante Cardinal, which is responsible for managing the specialized medical clinic.
