Dec 05, 2017
Construction is set to begin next month on a for-profit medical clinic in a partnership between a Winnipeg businessman and Long Plain First Nation.
The $20-million facility will be built on the First Nation’s urban reserve in Winnipeg. The First Nation will own the building, which will be leased by a company owned by internet pharmacy owner Daren Jorgenson.
Jorgenson plans to offer a wide range of services, including elective MRI scans, dental care and blood and urine tests. He hopes to partner with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority and Manitoba Health to offer public services, including a family practice, walk-in care and endocrinology.
