OurHealth Updates Expansion Efforts

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS and FISHERS -

Six months after Indianapolis-based OurHealth LLC detailed a $37 million round of funding, the company says growth in central Indiana and the rest of the country continues. Plans call for a third MyClinic network city -- in addition to Indianapolis and Charlotte -- by year's end and the on-site and near-site primary care clinic and wellness programming provider says it has landed two key Hoosier customers already in January: the city of Fishers and the Indianapolis Airport Authority.

Ultimately, the on-site and near-site primary care clinic and wellness programming provider says it intends to launch in a total of eight markets, creating close to 500 jobs over five years. It operates 40 MyClinic locations and says the investment will help it scale-up virtual care options. OurHealth currently employs some 300 and around half of the new jobs the company is planning to add are expected to be located in Indiana.

Chief Executive Officer Ben Evans says "healthcare is broken in this country because access is not widespread and we waste two-thirds of our investment on unnecessary procedures that don't actually improve the outcome. So we came up with a simpler way to deploy high quality care and we hold ourselves accountable to three fundamental goals - are people using the clinics? Are they getting healthier and are we saving them and their employees money?"

OurHealth expects to open the city of Fishers' new clinic in March and the partnership with IAA gives its employees access to clinics and wellness programming in Indianapolis.

    • #MeToo, Bullying And What We All Can Do Now

      Indeed, it is an interesting time with so much continuing to come out in Hollywood, the media, other industries, and even our state government related to the sexual harassment of women - women who have remained silent for years. Like those women, I too have been harassed in various ways over the course of my career, even in recent years - and yes, even in top leadership roles. The headline about my departure or the email citing that I was moving on never fully told the real story.
