Investment will fund market expansion, sales and marketing growth

 

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
  • Launching a direct-to-consumer healthcare experience

 

Access to OurHealth’s on-site and near-site MyClinic also provides ample benefits for employees who enjoy shorter wait times and longer, one-on-one appointments with clinic staff. 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.

OurHealth Team Participates in Walk-For-Wishes

OUrHealth walkersA team of OurHealth walkers participated in the 10th annual Walk-for-Wishes on July 18th. The Walk-For-Wishes is a fundraiser for Make-A-Wish Kentucky, Ohio & Indiana, which benefits children with life-threatening conditions by granting their “wishes.” Wishes vary widely, from “I wish to be meet real ballerinas” to “I wish to see where pineapples grow.” Regardless of the wish, almost all require funding. Proceeds from the Walk-For-Wishes are contributed directly to the effort to make kids’ wishes a reality.

The OurHealth Walk-For-Wishes team contributed to this cause with the highest level of participation that OurHealth has ever had. The team consisted of 25 employees and their family members, including several of those of the canine variety. The OurHealth team raised a total of $2,311 to donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and had an additional $1,000 “Star of Hope” corporate sponsorship. The funds for this sponsorship were drawn from a collection of headquarters employees’ $5 donations they can make in order to wear jeans on Fridays.

More than 1,750 people in total participated in the event, including “Wish Kids,” or children who have had their wishes granted through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. A grand total of $154,052 was raised from the Walk-For-Wishes, which will be used to help grant even more wishes. The average cost to fund a wish is $8,000, so the funds raised are enough to bring almost 20 kids’ wishes to life.

ourhealth walkers3OurHealth employee Kellina Avnet, who attended the Walk-For-Wishes with her husband and two-year-old daughter, expressed her appreciation for the Wish Kids that attended the event. “It’s for a great cause, and it’s so cool to hear the kids tell stories about what they’ve done for their wishes,” she said.

“With some charities, you don’t usually get to see exactly where your money is going,” Avnet said, “so it’s nice being able to actually see the kids there and know that the money you raised will help them fulfill their wishes.”
