Pure Life Healthcare Management aims to change the healthcare landscape for people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by providing integrated, wrap-around care that responds to the unique needs of this significantly underserved population.
Over 1.3 million people in Canada live with some form of PTSD or trauma. Many are veterans, first responders, healthcare providers and social workers. In lieu of trying to heal, many simply keep pushing forward, either unable to find help or unaware help exists.
That’s why Canada’s 600,000 frontline healthcare and social work staff are experiencing record attrition rates. It’s why Canada’s 600,000 veterans and 700,000 first responders have significantly higher rates of PTSD and burnout compared to the general public. This is why Canada is in the process of implementing a National Strategy for PTSD focusing on prevention, early intervention and treatment.
Part of that strategy involves increasing funding for mental health services and looking for partners.
Drawing the majority of its revenue from government and insurance benefits, Pure Life Healthcare Management provides more than 20 services to support PTSD and trauma patients. Backed by an experienced team with a deep understanding of issues surrounding mental health, Pure Life is also structured to leverage its own value chain, which includes wrap-around care clinics, occupational therapy, alternative medical treatments, pharmacies and partnerships with organizations such as Heroes Haven Society.
Pure Life Healthcare Management maintains full ownership of its ecosystem, including commercial and real estate holdings.
The company’s current plan begins with a virtual care model, opening physical locations once it’s onboarded enough clinics to ensure profitability on day one. With this strategy, it expects to achieve $690,000 in projected revenue by the end of 2023, eventually reaching $90.85 million by 2025.
For years, Canada has underserved the vast population suffering from PTSD. This is finally changing; and Pure Life Healthcare Management is on the front lines, guided by its corporate mantra, “connecting purpose with profit.”
