First Stop Health, LLC, a Chicago, IL-based telemedicine provider, raised an additional $2.1m in seed funding.
This round, which brought total funding to $5.6m raised to date, was led by existing investors, including company co-founders and several family offices and angel investors from the Midwest and Texas. New investors included several technology entrepreneurs and a European investment group.
The company is using the funds to enhance its physician network, expand sales and marketing efforts, and build technology enhancements around its physician, client and member platforms.
Co-founded by CEO Patrick Spain and Dr. Mark Friedman, First Stop Health provides a telemedicine and advocacy service available to employers and their employees. It offers immediate, 24/7/365 phone and online access to a U.S.-based, national physician network that provides members with advice, diagnosis and treatment, including – when necessary – prescriptions.
