Bayshore HealthCare celebrates 50 years

Humble beginnings and steady growth are the hallmark of company’s success

Mississauga, May 4, 2016…Bayshore HealthCare, a Canadian leader in the provision of home heath care services, celebrates a significant milestone this year. Bayshore’s 50-year anniversary will be marked with celebrations, story-telling opportunities, a special anniversary section on its website, a video and promotions.

All of this to highlight that while Bayshore’s foundation may be built on its experience as a home health care provider, the company has strategically grown and expanded its business. Our services now include therapy and rehabilitation, infusion and dialysis clinics as well as health care navigation for employers.

Bayshore’s origins began in 1966, but it wasn’t until 1993 that Bayshore was established as a wholly owned Canadian company.  Through a tactical approach of acquisitions and partnerships, Bayshore has grown to be not only a leading provider of health care services in Canada, but an important member of the health care environment.

“When the foundation of Bayshore was laid 50 years ago, it was difficult to envision the tremendous growth and success our organization has had,” says Stuart Cottrelle, president and founder of Bayshore. “But our success has not come from what I’ve personally done, but more from the fact we’ve been able to attract good people whose passion is to provide excellent service.”

While keeping its passionate and caring service to the client its mission, Bayshore is also proud of its connection with the local communities it serves. Over 60 decentralized offices across the country are integral partners with other community agencies, hospitals and health care providers.  In addition, the many partnerships with health care associations  and accomplishments such as the recent award as one of Canada’s Top Employers for 2016 from Forbes Media helps to strengthen Bayshore’s reputation as a leader in the health care field.

Today, Bayshore launched a new 50th Anniversary section to its website – one that acknowledges the contributions of its long term employees and clients, but also includes a video, a special message from Bayshore’s president, and a membership program. The site will be updated regularly with stories and photos, as well as special promotions.
