Sprinter Health, an online platform for booking at-home lab appointments, raised $33 million in Series A funding.
Andreessen Horowitz led the round with General Catalyst, Accel, and Google Ventures. Angel investors include DoorDash co-founder and CEO Tony Xu and former Senator Bill Frist.
The company plans to use the funds to expand its last-mile healthcare services into new markets.
Sprinter works with specialty labs, insurers, providers, and employers for its service. The company currently operates in the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento, but it plans to expand to Los Angeles and San Diego by the end of the year. Sprinter plans on offering its services in Texas and Florida in 2022.
“Our plan is to act as doctors’ hands-in-the-home while also leveraging technology to reorient the experience around the patient, extend the reach of telehealth services, and enable a new world of healthcare services,” said Cameron Behar, CTO and Co-Founder, Sprinter Health.
“Every healthcare company has been forced to contemplate its strategy for delivering services in the home, to extend their patient journeys from solely facility-based or virtual-based encounters into continuous relationships that meet patients where they are,” said Julie Yoo, General Partner at a16z. “The world-class team at Sprinter Health has created the infrastructure to democratize access to clinical services in the home that enable just that. We are excited to be backing Max and Cameron as they instrument the last-mile of on-demand care delivery.”
