Pillars of Wellness is a community based multidisciplinary clinic, whose services entail a high degree of collaboration and communication among health providers.
We (Laurent and Lori) are the co-owners of Pillar of Wellness. Our vision is to provide truly integrated healthcare services to all clients. Having worked within a variety of health care settings and observed the strengths and weaknesses within our various medical/rehabilitation disciplines, we have been inspired to serve as a bridge in addressing a very noticeable gap in services.
Although the healthcare system utilizes the services of numerous skilled professionals, all of whom are equipped to treat and manage a client’s care from a variety of perspectives, access to care, efficiency of care and overall quality and cost of care remains lacking. It has become apparent that collaboration and communication amongst various disciplines has become minimized or disjointed and the unfortunate result of this has been a redundancy with respect to assessment and treatment, to the degree that modalities employed frequently do not best facilitate the recovery process.
Our vision at Pillar of Wellness is to provide services which fully embodies collaboration and partnership amongst professionals and to serve as a primary center for the maintenance and promotion of health.
At Pillars of Wellness, we are resolved to change this old practice and revolutionize the way we diagnose, treat, care, rehabilitate and promote health for our clients.
