ZOOM+Care’s expansion occurs with an attendant critical primary care physician shortages in many U.S. states.
Colorado’s population has grown by 1.5 million people in 20 years and ranks 27th for number of primary care doctors per 100,000 people. With a mere 96 doctors per 100,000 residents, Idaho ranks last in the nation. By offering both physical clinics and telehealth services, ZOOM+Care says that is is helping ease that strain.
According to a statement release by ZOOM+Care, construction is has commenced at locations in Denver and Boise, with planned openings scheduled for late December for the Boise and Boulder location, and early 2021 for the Denver location.
Included in this move will be the delivery of ZOOM+Care’s telehealth service, VideoCare™, which the organization estimates will serve nearly eight million people who reside in Idaho and Colorado.
“Denver, Boise, and Boulder are fast-growing cities whose residents need better choices when it comes to their health,” said ZOOM+Care CEO Torben Nielsen. “With these clinic openings, we’re bringing the same on-demand scheduling, no-wait in-clinic experience, and exceptional video-based care our patients in the Pacific Northwest have rated 4.8 out of 5 stars for 15 years. We’re changing what people should expect from healthcare—and empowering patients and providers along the way.”
Services offered to patients will include urgent, primary, and preventive care services. On-site labs and pharmacies are also listed by ZOOM+Care as components of the new clinics.
