PeaceHealth and ZOOM+Care® today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement for PeaceHealth to acquire ZOOM+Care. PeaceHealth and Zoom® will provide access to a continuum of care that offers consumers more choice and convenience in how they receive healthcare services, ranging from mobile app-driven services and neighborhood clinics to sophisticated specialty and hospital services.
PeaceHealth is a leading health system serving communities throughout the Pacific Northwest and Zoom provides an innovative, on-demand neighborhood health platform and is based in Portland, Oregon.
“The addition of Zoom to PeaceHealth’s networks accelerates our vision of ensuring greater healthcare accessibility and affordability in our communities while increasing our ability to meet the on-demand needs of today’s consumer,” said Liz Dunne, PeaceHealth President and Chief Executive Officer. “What is so exciting about this relationship is the complementary nature of our organizations and our shared passion for being the stewards of our communities’ health and well-being.”
Founded in 2006, ZOOM+Care has led the on-demand healthcare movement, building one of the country’s leading platforms for the innovative delivery of retail and digital healthcare. In just over 10 years, Zoom has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of people annually in 37 neighborhood clinics in Oregon and Washington, providing a full range of healthcare services, as well as innovative telemedicine services.

“Over the past decade, we imagined a future with our customer (we call her Sarah) at the center, managing her care using our mobile app and having easy access to neighborhood locations for her care,” said Dave Sanders, MD, Zoom’s Co-Founder and CEO. “We found in PeaceHealth a shared vision and recognition that healthcare is continually evolving with increasing preferences for on-demand care. PeaceHealth and ZOOM+Care both aim to create a magnetic consumer experience, provide superb clinical results and help make healthcare more accessible and affordable.
“I’m also delighted for our hundreds of thousands of loyal patients who’ve come to rely on Zoom, because they can be confident that Zoom and its dedicated healthcare professionals and associates will continue to be there for them,” added Sanders.
Under the terms of the agreement, ZOOM+Care will operate under its own brand name with separate leadership and board of directors and will further its focus on innovation, consumer experience and expanding access. PeaceHealth’s acquisition of ZOOM+Care is expected to close Dec. 31, 2018.
