OTTAWA, Sept. 26, 2019 /CNW/ - MD Financial Management Inc. celebrates its 50th year today as the only national financial services firm exclusively dedicated to the financial well-being of physicians and their families. To mark this milestone, we are proud to give thanks where it is due - to Canada's doctors.
Canadians are invited to join us and recognize a doctor who has made a difference in their life by signing a digital thank-you card at ThankYouDoctors.ca. Add your voice to the many Canadians who have already said thank you.
Every day across Canada, physicians care for patients in remarkable and life-changing ways.
One of MD's own wants to thank the doctor who helped save the life of her son when he was just three months old:
"I want to give my heartfelt thanks for the treatment and care that the physicians at CHEO (Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario) gave to my son and my family," said Rebecca Ford, Organization Development Coordinator at MD. "My son was admitted to the ICU with severe dehydration and, ultimately, he needed an emergency intraosseous infusion procedure to stabilize him. After many tests, and sleepless nights, he was eventually diagnosed with a severe cow's-milk protein allergy. Hearing that your three-month-old has to live with a potentially life-altering allergy can be overwhelming for anyone. But thanks to the planning, guidance and monitoring of the staff at CHEO, he is now a healthy 4½-year-old with absolutely zero allergies or intolerances — who enjoys as much cheese and milk as his mom lets him get his hands on!"
We're proud to say thank you to Canada's physicians
"We recognize that doctors make some of the most important moments and milestones in our lives possible," said Brian Peters, President and Chief Executive Officer of MD Financial Management. "We are proud of our 50 years of experience exclusively supporting physicians at every step of their lives and careers — from medical school through retirement. Inspired by how they work tirelessly for their patients' well-being, we continue to work with them to help them achieve their financial goals."
While much has changed since 1969, one thing has remained constant: MD's commitment to acting in the best interests of Canada's physicians.
