Hamilton Health Box Raises $10M in Series A Funding


Hamilton Health Box, a Houston, TX-based provider of microclinic operating models, has raised $10 million in Series A funding. The funding round was led by 1588 Ventures, with participation from Memorial Hermann Health System, Impact Ventures by Johnson & Johnson Foundation, Texas Medical Center Venture Fund, and the Sullivan Brothers.

The company plans to use the funds to accelerate its expansion into rural markets, aiming to bring its microclinic model to rural America and the 98 million Americans living in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs).

Founded by Dr. Toby R. Hamilton, Hamilton Health Box offers de novo microclinics, prefabricated facilities designed for primary care services. These microclinics are suitable for various settings, including rural markets, employer worksites, office buildings, schools, and university campuses. They utilize a hybrid approach of in-person and telemedicine care to enhance accessibility and convenience.

In rural areas, Hamilton Health Box has partnered with leading Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) to provide primary care services at existing FQHC centers and through new sites, aiming for broader coverage and impact. The company’s innovative model addresses the healthcare access gap in underserved areas by combining modern telehealth solutions with on-site medical care.
