Omnichannel healthcare provider Carbon Health has recently acquired two separate clinic chains: Southern Arizona Urgent Care’s nine clinics in Tucson, Arizona, and Med7 Urgent Care’s four clinics in Sacramento, California. This brings Carbon Health’s total up to 83 clinics across 12 states.

Aided by a funding round this year totaling $350 million, the acquisitions are calculated to make Carbon one of the largest national healthcare providers, with an emphasis on equitable access to high-quality care.

The move was also spurred in part by the COVID-19 pandemic, with Carbon Health cofounder and CEO Eren Bali saying via statement that rising case counts are widening the healthcare inequality gap, prompting the company to expand its care model and technology platform to new regions.

WHAT’S THE IMPACT?

Carbon Health’s proprietary platform is designed to reduce administrative workload – and burnout – for providers by enabling them to focus on care and utilize clinical staff at the top of their license.
