INDIANAPOLIS (May 17, 2017) – OurHealth, a leading provider of employer-based on-site and near-site clinics, announces today it has raised $37 million to fund market expansion and further growth in sales, marketing and technology. San Francisco-based White Oak leads the financing which also includes participation from individual private investors. The funding raise follows a sequential run of double-digit year-over-year growth.
“We’re thrilled about the raise and feel lucky to have found such a great strategic partner in White Oak,” said Ben Evans, CEO and co-founder of OurHealth. “Our mission is to radically improve the healthcare experience through greater access, reduced costs for employees and employers and make a meaningful impact on people’s health. We have 295 of the brightest minds in healthcare working passionately to address those gaps and this investment allows us to accelerate the charge.”
OurHealth’s unique offering has attracted a growing list of customers, including City of Charlotte, NC, Centier Bank, CNO Financial Group, and OneAmerica. Its on-site and near-site employer-sponsored clinics have been shown to deliver an increase in talent retention, increased employee well-being, and meaningful savings on healthcare costs.
“OurHealth has delivered impressive growth over the last few years, and we’re confident that with this incremental capital they are poised for even greater disruption” said White Oak Healthcare Managing Director and Partner, Isaac Solemani. “OurHealth’s innovative technology continues to improve the consumer experience with both clinical and non-clinical services and offers products that support patient needs.”
OurHealth will use the funds to achieve key goals over the next five years including:
- Expanding its MyClinic network into eight new markets
- Developing 11 new MyClinics in Indianapolis and Charlotte, N.C.
- Hiring 480 new employees
- Investing in sales, marketing, technology and data security

At MyClinics employees spend between 20-40 minutes with their provider (based on the appointment type) compared to the average 6.7 minutes that individuals spend nationwide. In addition, 99 percent of OurHealth patients rate their experience as good or excellent.
