Copeman Healthcare Best Managed Company 2017

Copeman Healthcare Once Again Named One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for Business Excellence

Western Canada’s experts in personal, proactive, team-based healthcare drives superior results

Vancouver, BC – March 9, 2017 – For the second year in a row, Copeman Healthcare was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for excellence in business performance. The Best Managed program recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.

With clinics in Vancouver, West Vancouver, Calgary & Edmonton, Copeman Healthcare offers an inter-disciplinary care model that leverages the deep knowledge of a variety of health professionals to create personalized, prevention-focused programs for its clients. Copeman has driven solid double-digit revenue growth every year since inception in 2005 and, despite this tremendous growth, has also maintained client satisfaction scores that consistently exceed 90%. Additionally, the organization achieved key employee engagement scores that have averaged 85% over the last 5 years – something that did not go unrecognized in its efforts to achieve Best Managed status once again.

“It was an exhilarating moment for all of us,” said Chris Nedelmann, CEO of Copeman Healthcare, on the news of the announcement. “Our team works hard every day to create the best possible environment for not only our patients, but for our employees and the company as a whole. Being named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for another year only motivates us to set an even higher standard for our level of execution moving forward.”

What makes Copeman truly unique is its innovative process. By combining the care of an entire team of specialized healthcare professionals, Copeman has become one of Western Canada‘s leading experts in personal, proactive, team-based healthcare.

“We place a strong emphasis on disease prevention and early detection through the use of evidence-based diagnostic technologies and health monitoring tools,” adds Les Jickling, Senior Director of Marketing & Communications. “We take the time to listen to our clients’ concerns, and our dedicated care teams work together to help ensure they experience the best possible health outcomes.”

Copeman has built a respectful, high-performance culture by establishing a set of core values, investing heavily in the growth of its people, placing a strong focus on leadership development and benchmarking 12 elements of culture against published data from top 10 industry leaders. In addition to its day-to-day operations, employees are also encouraged to give back to the community. In 2016, the company donated hundreds of hours of time to support volunteer efforts and supported over 30 charitable organizations.

“CIBC is thrilled to congratulate Copeman Healthcare on being named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, recognizing its excellence in leadership, business performance and innovation,” said Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice President, Business and Corporate Banking, CIBC. “As a sponsor of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program for over 20 years, CIBC is proud to celebrate private companies like Copeman as leaders in their industry.”

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices.
