Ms. Halko is founder and an owner of Grand Medicine Health Services and COO of the Grand Medicine Group of Companies. Following her experience with an International Pharmaceutical company and an owner operator of a community Pharmacy, Gail founded Grand Medicine in 1999 with the goal of redefining a pharmacy’s interactions with clients. Her vision was to build a service-based model aimed at meeting the specific needs of clients and explicitly move away from the traditional commodity based model of the industry. As a testament to successfully realizing this vision, Grand Medicine was awarded the prestigious Canadian Pharmaceutical Associations’ Patient Care Achievement Award for Innovation in 2012.
The Grand Medicine Group is ISO certified and operates three pharmacies, including their newest venture; Grand Medicine Health Sciences Pharmacy, located at Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg – the largest tertiary care hospital in Manitoba. The Group also owns a medical supply company, a wholesale/distribution centre, and a diabetes education centre.
