A first-of-its-kind, wellness clinic has opened in Bedford South, exclusively for military and RCMP veterans.

Echelon Wellness says in a release, it is a one-stop solution to care for that part of the community.

The clinic says Veterans and RCMP have unique healthcare and administrative challenges resulting from their dedicated service and are “an underserved segment of the healthcare community across the country.”

They offer a wide range of services including physiotherapy, osteopathy, massage and counselling.

CEO Igor Gimelshtein says HRM was a natural choice for the first location, with a highly concentration Veteran and RCMP community.

“Veterans and RCMP have made significant sacrifices for our communities and way of life. They deserve our best in return. Echelon Wellness is designed to address their conditions, resulting from their service and professional experiences.”

Bedford is the first location, but St. John’s, Newfoundland is the next to open in the coming months.
