Circle Medical Rapidly Expands Telemedicine Offering with New Investment
San Francsico, CA – San Francisco, CA – (NewMediaWire) – April 16, 2020 – Circle Medical, a leading provider of in-person and telemedicine primary care, promises rapid expansion fueled by a seven-figure investment from Decathlon Capital Partners.
The new funding will support additional service capacity and continued development of the company’s proprietary platform. Circle Medical enables consumers to establish an ongoing relationship with a primary care provider for their physical and mental health, preventive care, medications, referrals and treatment of chronic conditions — as well as urgent issues. All Circle Medical physicians are board-certified in either family or internal medicine, with years of clinical experience.
Circle Medical is also in-network with most major health insurance carriers, so patients can use their insurance just as they would when visiting a traditional doctor’s office.
“Expanding our platform and the number of physicians working with us is vital to meet the demand for Circle Medical’s services,” said George Favvas, CEO and co-founder. “With Decathlon’s investment in our vision for the business, we can now grow the platform and accept many more patients.”
Growth plans include more than tripling revenue over the next 12 months and opening 22 clinics in six markets over the next three years. Telehealth services in the United States grew by more than 25 percent over the last five years and were expected to increase 9.2 percent in 2020, before factoring in the impact of widespread telehealth implementation as a result of Covid-19, according to IBIS World.
“Telemedicine is a white-hot market in the age of Covid-19,” said Decathlon’s Wayne Cantwell. “Circle Medical has a clinically sound and efficient telemedicine offering that’s convenient for consumers and remarkably cost-effective. We see this as the future of primary care and are pleased to make this investment in Circle Medical’s bold growth plans.”
