Khiron Life Sciences Corp. announced the opening of its first Zerenia clinic in Medellin, Colombia´s second largest city with reach to over 6 million residents in the region.
The Medellin clinic, with a grand opening planned for December 8, 2020, supports Khiron´s goal of expanding regional access to the Company’s proven clinic services and medical cannabis products for patients across the country, with a focus on in-person and telehealth services in Colombia’s largest urban centres. The clinic is conveniently located in the San Diego sector of the city, minutes from downtown with access to public transit and walking distance to major business and residential areas.
“We launched our Zerenia operations in Bogota in Q1 2020 and in Q2 our Dr. Zerenia telehealth operations began. The clinic data quickly showed that more than 25% of patients were accessing our telehealth services from outside of Bogota. Once proven successful, Khiron will continue to expand its regional presence, in Colombia and beyond,” comments Alvaro Torres, Khiron CEO and Director.
The Zerenia Medellin clinic will be the first in the city, expanding national access and improving the quality of life of patients in the populous Antioquia region. The clinic will provide face-to-face care and teleconsultation through the Doctor Zerenia platform and physical consultation, connecting patients with medical specialists trained in the ethical, safe and responsible prescription of cannabis-based medications, and in the comprehensive treatment of pathologies such as chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, depression, headache, epilepsy and Parkinson’s.
