CALGARY, Alberta—FYidoctors, Canada’s leading diversified health care organization, has added Weyburn Eye Care Clinic to its banner. The merger marks FYidoctors’ first optometry practice in the city of Weyburn, which is regarded as one of the growing regional centers in southeast Saskatchewan, according to the company’s announcement late last month. The terms of the addition were not disclosed. In operation since the 1940s, Weyburn Eye Care is the only vision care clinic in Weyburn. It is led by optometrists Dr. Sonya Hung and Dr. Robert Labbie, and the clinic provides complete and comprehensive eyecare.

“Weyburn Eye Care Clinic has been the exclusive provider of quality, comprehensive eyecare in the community for over 80 years—a remarkable achievement in its own right,” Dr. Alan Ulsifer, chief executive and chairman of FYidoctors, said in the announcement. “We’re confident that the new partnership will continue to serve the Weyburn and surrounding areas through the patient-centric care they are accustomed to—just now with the added benefits and tools provided through FYidoctors.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with an organization who, like us, share in the vision of enhancing the lives of patients through quality eyecare,” added Dr. Labbie.
“In partnering, we join a growing team of experts, and have access to an abundance of resources and technological advances,” Dr. Hung said. “This allows the clinic opportunity to provide advanced solutions to both patient’s eyecare and eyewear needs at the local level.”

Weyburn Eye Care has taken part in community initiatives and projects for decades, including Family Place, the Weyburn Humane Society, United Way and many others. This impactful work will continue through FYidoctors’ Enhancing Life Foundation—a national foundation that provides grants to a wide variety of Canadian charitable organizations and community outreach programs that enhance life.

Under the new partnership, FYidoctors provides the clinic with significant human resource management services; customized staff training, tools, and support; world-class marketing; enhanced clinical technology, and lenses that are manufactured in Canada at the FYidoctors’ internal freeform laboratory and distribution center.
