WELL Health Stories

Prioritizing inclusive and accessible healthcare for underserved populations

Our focus is to make healthcare accessible to all. Although healthcare coverage in Canada is almost universal, long wait times, insufficient coverage in rural and remote regions, and a lack of culturally and linguistically appropriate care options can limit accessibility.

Circle Medical, one of our U.S. digital clinics, is dedicated to ensuring access to inclusive care by providing services to underserved populations. In 2022 Circle Medical took steps to offer gender-affirming care to trans patients, a community that often experiences stigma and difficulty accessing proper care. Circle Medical trained providers and set up a curriculum to ensure that patients receive the care they need, including hormone therapy. Circle Medical also offers telehealth services, which allow patients to receive care regardless of their location. This is especially beneficial for individuals who may live in areas where certain medical conditions are stigmatized.
