The same year, the radiology clinics in Longueuil, Châteauguay and Granby join the Imagix network.
Biron Health Group acquires Médiavis and expands its operations into clinic management, occupational medicine and medical expertise services.
The Sleep Care unit obtains its first certification from Accreditation Canada. The same year, Clinique Radiologie Laennec joins Imagix along with two other radiology clinics in Montréal-Nord and Rivière-des-Prairies. The two Imagix clinics located in Longueuil merge and move to renovated premises.
Biron Health Group is named among the best employers in Quebec by Aon Hewitt.
The Radiologie Momed clinic joins Imagix under the name “Imagix-Radiologie Cabrini”.
Biron diversifies its services once again by opening medical clinics at Quartier DIX30 and a service centre specializing in corporate services. It is the birth of a brand new business unit: Biron-Corporate Health.
Geneviève Biron takes the helm of the company, succeeding her sister Ève-Lyne who leaves after 25 years of service, 20 of which were served as Biron’s President. This change breathes new life into the company as Geneviève begins her role by implementing her strategic and long-term vision.
During the same year, Imagix-Medical Imaging obtains its first certification from Accreditation Canada and the Radiologie des Récollets clinic in Trois-Rivières joins the network.
Biron signs a Canada-wide partnership agreement with MedSleep and AvantSleep for sleep care.

The AMI Portal continues to stand out with respect to innovation, with the company winning a Telus Health award at the ACMQ’s front-line services conference for its implementation of an innovative technology.
Finally, the company acquires the Medvue network of private radiology clinics.
For the second consecutive year, Biron qualifies for Canada’s Best Managed Companies business awards. In February, the company announces that it has completed the acquisition of BiogeniQ.
The transfer and growth strategy implemented by Geneviève since becoming President enables the company to distinguish itself at prestigious business competitions. Biron receives a Mercure award in the entrepreneurship, succession and business transfer category at the 38th edition of Les Mercuriades, organized by the Fédération des chambres de commerce du Québec (FCCQ). As well, it is awarded the Gold Medal in the Family Transfer category at the 12th edition of the Business Transfer Awards organized by PwC.
