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 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.
A special thank you to our partners for their support.
