"Lumino Health is a game changer and it's about time a health network like this is available," said Canadian Olympic hockey legend, Hayley Wickenheiser. "As an athlete, I've used my share of massage therapists, physiotherapists and dentists to help me be my best throughout my playing days, but now as a busy mom and medical student, Lumino Health makes it so much easier and quicker for me to find everything I need in one place."

Here's what Luminohealth.ca is bringing to Canadians:

  • Information on more than 150,000 health providers including dentists, massage therapists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, psychologists, vision care providers, naturopaths, acupuncturists and more from coast to coast;
  • More than six million ratings on these providers from Sun Life's Clients who have used these services;
  • Ability to compare provider costs;
  • Helpful information like hours of operation, languages spoken and the ability to request an appointment online;
  • The latest apps, products and solutions from health innovators supported by reviews from a community of users; and
  • Insights from health industry experts on how to live a healthier life.

 

"What's unique about Lumino Health is how quick and easy it is to find a health provider that fits your needs. In the past if you moved, you would have relied on word of mouth or spent time researching to find a new set of health providers like dentists and physiotherapists. Now, you can use Luminohealth.ca to find the best matches for you in less than a minute," says Chris Denys, Senior Vice-President, Possibilities, Sun Life Financial. "We want Lumino Health to be your one-stop-shop by providing credible information with an easy to use tool to make searching for what you need as simple as booking a hotel. By doing so, we hope it will empower Canadians to live healthier lives."
