Funding will accelerate growth, enhance Everside’s technology stack to facilitate predictive, whole-patient care, and support potential M&A opportunities
Everside Health, LLC, a leading national direct primary care provider, today announced that it has raised $164 million in growth equity funding. Longstanding investor New Enterprise Associates, Inc. (NEA), a global venture capital firm that invests in transformational healthcare and technology companies, was joined by all previous Everside investors, including: Oak HC/FT, Alta Partners, as well as nine new investors, including EndeavorCatalyst. Proceeds will be used to support the Company’s growth, accelerate its impact and footprint, support potential M&A opportunities and enhance the Company’s technology stack, including new functionality and services that will empower Everside’s providers to deliver predictive patient care that treats the whole person and not just their symptoms. Everside will expand its services and specialty coverage with initiatives targeting the broad set of problems Americans, employers and union organizations face in healthcare access, cost and outcomes.
“Limited access to quality primary care in the U.S. has compounded chronic conditions, exacerbated mental health problems and increased healthcare costs,” said Everside Health CEO, Chris Miller. “Continued investment from NEA, Oak HC/FT and Alta Partners – and participation from our new investors – is a strong endorsement of our work to deliver high-quality, affordable and accessible healthcare. It will enable us to embed additional mental health professionals into our health centers as well as advance our technology capabilities to drive improved clinical outcomes. We are grateful for the funding and partnership of these esteemed investors and pleased to see the continued conviction in our integrated, value-based approach to direct primary care.”
Everside’s value-based business model emphasizes health outcomes over patient volume, keeping patients active, healthy and out of the emergency room, while allowing doctors and medical professionals to focus on providing quality care while preventing burnout. The Company helps labor unions, school districts, manufacturers and other workforces save an average of 17% on claims costs by year three and 31% by year five based on retrospective claims analysis conducted by the Company.
“It’s clear that the U.S. is the midst of a healthcare crisis, with rising costs, lack of access to care, and mental health issues becoming more severe across the country,” said Mohamad Makhzoumi, Managing General Partner, Healthcare at NEA and member of Everside Health’s Board of Directors. “While a myriad of organizations are trying to make healthcare more accessible and affordable, Everside’s model has already proven to drive better health outcomes and deliver cost savings for patients and providers alike. We look forward to supporting their continued growth and success.”
