About Citizen Care Health Solutions

Citizen Care Health Solutions (CCHS) is on a mission to personalize and simplify access to quality healthcare, enabling citizens to achieve better health outcomes where they are.

Our Story

Our journey began in 2020 when we developed flexible COVID-19 screening and testing pods. These pods were used throughout North America at a wide variety of locations including airports, long-term care facilities, healthcare clinics, universities, sports venues and construction sites.

Since then, we’ve rapidly expanded our service offerings to provide at-home and point of care medical testing for home health associations and skilled nursing facilities. We also offer second medical opinions for the insurance sector.
