Canada Care Medical is a proud client-centered health care product provider.
Canada Care Medical has remained a family-oriented business over the years. It began out of the family need for specialized ostomy care products in the Greater Ottawa Region, where none could be found. Founder Brian Meloche, realized there was a need for specialized medical products at large. He decided to fill that gap and established a business centered around helping people manage health concerns and get on with their lives. Over five decades, members of the family have committed to a tradition of service and have greatly expanded the range of medical products and the inventory available through the now 9 store locations.
In addition, CCM has competed successfully for multiple Ontario government LHIN (Local Health Integration Network) medical supplies contracts across the province of Ontario, and has consistently exceeded rigorous performance standards for rapid order processing, on-time customer delivery, in-stock availability, and fulfillment accuracy to accommodate these large health care providers. Our Brampton fulfillment warehouse is proud to have achieved the prestigious ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System registration, which involves rigorous annual audits and demands continual process improvement.
Together with the health-care product lines, CCM provides clients in-home and in-store repairs and installations of equipment like scooters and stairlifts. CCM also caters to clients who have a temporary need for health-care products through the Rental Department, by providing wheelchairs, walkers, scooters and beds at competitive pricing.
Since 2011, CCM has filled over one million health care product orders. Most of the inventory is easily available for in-store purchases, through inter-store shipping, or regular shipping to your door.
