Commitment to Care & Service Awards is the only national awards program created to recognize, and reward, the many facets of pharmacy-- from patient care to health promotion; from disease management to business acumen; from inter-professional collaboration to charitable work.

West End Medicine Centre’s Ostomy Care and Supply Centre started with a small ostomy section in 1985; today they care for over 3,000 patients! They have five registered nurses and three assistants on staff with multiple examination rooms to support their ostomy service.

Congratulations to the team at West End Medicine Centre, Ostomy Care and Supply Centre!
