Medical Clinic and Family Practice - Priced at $365,000

Annual revenues: $840,000.  Owner's income: $85,000

This is a Medical Family Practice Clinic with a walk-in and advance access component located in the Kootenay region of south eastern B.C.  It is the first and only real full-time clinic of it's kind in the town and has been operating for over 20 years.   They provide the same coverage as any Physician's office in B.C. i.e. the Medical Services Plan (MSP) applies to all covered services for B.C. patients.  The billing rates are set by MSP.  MSP remittance is every 15 days.  Private (uninsured by MSP) visits are billed at between $75 to $250 per visit.

The current owners have built this into a very busy clinic, however, they are non-physicians and sometimes run into the issue of doctors not wanting to work full-time or consistently which leaves the clinic short of doctors for sufficient patient coverage. Patients are turned away and revenues are lost.  The owners believe that they have built the clinic to the point that a physician or physician couple who could fill this shortage by working in the clinic, would be the ideal buyers.

Micro Brewery and Lounge - Priced at $350,000

This is a "Turnkey" business. The owners have been working on this project for over four years. They have applied and received all the necessary permits. They spent funds on leasehold improvements and obtaining all of the equipment necessary to operate a successful microbrewery which is now ready to open.  The owner's plans however had to change as one of the partners has a health problem and is unable to participate in the company operations as planned.  As far as breweries go for seating capacity, this one is on the larger side. It has been approved for 30 people inside and the patio license is being applied for now. That would allow another 30 outside.  Over $300,000 was spent on leasehold improvements and $600,000 on brand new stainless steel equipment - all unused.
