Recuro Health (Recuro), an integrated digital health solutions company providing personalized benefits through its Digital Medical Home™, today announces it has acquired WellVia, a premier virtual health provider that remotely connects patients to board-certified physicians and behavioral health specialists.
The acquisition significantly expands Recuro’s digital health capabilities, allowing the company to provide a more robust suite of virtual primary care and behavioral health services that meet consumers where they are, no matter their location or circumstance.
“This is a significant leap forward for Recuro as we strive to enhance our Digital Medical Home™ with solutions that make healthcare more personalized, accessible and affordable,” says Michael Gorton, CEO and founder of Recuro Health. “Recuro and WellVia share a mission to better serve members by taking a virtual-first approach to primary care that enables deep, ongoing relationships between patients and their primary care physicians. Our alignment with WellVia allows us to provide patients a unique virtual primary care experience that is more comprehensive and integrates supplemental benefits such as genomic and lab screening, therapy and counseling and pharmacy services.”
Gorton points to his longtime colleague from Teladoc, Dr. Jay Sanders, recognized as “The Father of Telemedicine” and now a Recuro advisor who says, "This is one of the biggest deals in telehealth, bringing together some of the best minds and innovators in the industry. With the WellVia capabilities integrated into the Recuro approach to proactive, holistic care, this Company is positioned for explosive growth."
The acquisition not only augments Recuro’s suite of digital health solutions, but also strengthens its provider network. WellVia’s top primary care, urgent care and behavioral health physicians, who are licensed in all 50 states, will connect with patients through Recuro’s Digital Medical Home™ and provide tailored care plans and solutions to meet their individual needs. Recuro successfully raised a Series A round, led by ARCH Venture Partners in 2021, and with the WellVia acquisition, Recuro can continue to meaningfully scale across the United States and bring its solutions to employer groups, payers, providers and consumers.
WellVia’s CEO, Steve Gaffney, says, “Our entire WellVia team looks forward to this new chapter as we add our virtual primary care and behavioral health solutions to Recuro’s Digital Medical Home™, bringing truly customizable and comprehensive digital health solutions to people across the country.”
