SoftBank, which now has stakes in multiple health tech companies, led the series D round, according to anonymous sources cited by STAT. It would propel CityBlock’s valuation to $5.7 billion.
A CityBlock spokesperson confirmed with MedCity News that the company had raised a new round of capital.
As a multitude of primary care startups raise funds for concierge practices or subscription memberships, CityBlock is taking a different approach. The New York-based company offers primary care services to Medicare and dual-eligible patients, many of whom aren’t served well by the current healthcare system. It also provides behavioral health services, and helps connect people to community support, such as transportation, food and stable housing.
CityBlock plans to put the new funds toward its goal of serving 10 million members by 2030, including scaling its operations, technology and care services, a spokesperson wrote in an email.
Currently, the company operates in five states: New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, North Carolina and Washington, D.C. With its earlier series C round, the company also planned to expand to Ohio.
CityBlock is also looking to broaden its health services to include maternity and pediatrics. Nearly half of all births in the U.S. are covered by Medicaid.
