    Specializing in preventive healthcare, the cornerstone of Medisys'
Executive Health program is a comprehensive Executive Health Assessment. This
service includes a medical examination by a specialized Executive Health
physician, as well as a range of procedures to evaluate cancer and cardiac
risk, assess vision, hearing and lung functions, and evaluate lifestyle
factors such as exercise, diet, stress and smoking. Emphasizing service, care
and efficiency, Medisys' multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals
carries out this intensive analysis over the course of a half-day visit.
Clients are then provided with personalized feedback that will help them along
the path to healthier living.
    For those looking to ensure year-round healthcare coverage, Medisys'
Executive Health Assessment is complimented by Medisys One Concierge Service,
a value-added service that provides 24/7 assistance in any health-related
