In 2013, our three founders came together with a passion to fundamentally change the trajectory of healthcare by leveraging a clinical model that would anchor around primary care physicians, giving them the tools and resources needed to fulfill their Hippocratic oath to care for patients to the best of their ability.
In the United States today, nearly $4T per year is spent on healthcare, and over 85% of that is tied to patients with chronic disease. Knowing there must be a better way to deliver consistent, coordinated and personal care to all patients at a lower cost, we started to partner with physicians to provide the tools, technology, operations, staffing support and industry relationships to deliver high-quality clinical care and better patient outcomes in both a fee for service and value-based care environment. In the early years of implementing the model at practices in Houston, we realized that the promise of coordinated, cost-effective care is infinitely achievable.
To continue growing our vision, we leveraged our extensive clinical experience, tapped into our healthcare leader community, and surrounded ourselves with outstanding partners, advisors and investors. Together, we have continued to grow VillageMD, and through our subsidiary Village Medical, we have become one of the leading, national providers of value-based primary care services.
The Village Medical brand provides primary care for patients at traditional free-standing clinics, Village Medical at Walgreens co-located clinics, as well as extended access via primary care in the home and virtual visits through a proprietary technology solution.
Our passion continues, our ambitions are endless as we continue to transform healthcare.
