INDIANAPOLIS -

Indianapolis-based OurHealth says a $37 million round of funding will grow its national footprint and create nearly 500 jobs over the next five years. The employer-based on-site and near-site clinic provider received financing from White Oak Healthcare Finance LLC and other private investors. OurHealth says it plans to expand its MyClinic network into eight additional markets and open 11 new MyClinics in existing markets Indianapolis and Charlotte.

In an interview with Inside INdiana Business, Chief Executive Officer Ben Evans says the company has attracted a lot of attention from investment firms throughout the country. "In health care, there are very few opportunities to improve access to care, get people, healthier and happier and generate an ROI in the process," he says "and we accomplish all three of those."

The company, which currently employs 295, has a client portfolio that includes Hoosier companies like Merrillville-based Centier Bank, CNO Financial Group Inc. (NYSE: CNO) in Carmel and Indianapolis-based OneAmerica Financial Partners Inc. OurHealth is again reporting year-over-year, double-digit growth and Evans says "we're thrilled about the raise and feel lucky to have found such a great strategic partner in White Oak. 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."

OurHealth plans to also use the infusion to boost sales, marketing, technology and data security functions, as well as launching what it says will be a direct-to-consumer healthcare experience. It currently partners with businesses to offer primary and urgent care, wellness, laboratory, medication dispensing and referral services for patients in Indiana, North Carolina, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

      While there are arguably many minority groups that are grossly underutilized in the workforce, I’d wager that most people do not consider the Deaf community when thinking about diversity and inclusion strategies. The Deaf community shares a unique culture that is closely networked, but few employers know how to tap into this community, which comprises 10 percent of the population. In fact, many people probably see barriers for the Deaf community when it comes to employment...
