Newest health system collaboration gives Hims & Hers customers in Connecticut a trusted destination for access to high-quality healthcare services
SAN FRANCISCO and HARTFORD, Conn. – January 11, 2024 – Hims & Hers Health, Inc. (“Hims & Hers”, NYSE: HIMS), the leading health and wellness platform, and Connecticut’s most transformative health system, Hartford HealthCare (HHC), today announced a strategic partnership that broadens access to in-person healthcare services.
The collaboration provides patients with an enhanced and connected healthcare experience when they need care outside the Hims & Hers platform. Licensed medical providers on the platform will be able to seamlessly refer patients to HHC’s distinguished primary and specialty care provider network, when necessary. This can include when Hims & Hers customers have more complex health histories or medical needs, those that may require additional in-person follow-up care or evaluations or are in need of care for conditions not currently supported by the Hims & Hers platform.
This initiative reinforces Hims & Hers’ mission to expand access to high-quality, affordable and convenient care by integrating an esteemed Connecticut-based healthcare system into its growing network of provider relationships. The addition of HHC brings the company’s medical system partner network to now include 11 states and Washington, D.C.
“We partnered with Hartford HealthCare because of its unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional care, embracing innovation, and fostering a culture of compassion,” said Hims & Hers Chief Medical Officer Patrick Carroll, MD. “With a focus on patient well-being, cutting-edge treatments, and a dedicated team of healthcare professionals, we know our customers in Connecticut will always receive the best care when they need to see a specialist for treatment beyond our platform.”
Ensuring access to high-quality care continues to be a key priority for Hims & Hers as the company expands into more personalized treatments like the recently announced Heart Health by Hims and Weight Loss by Hims & Hers. HHC is known for many of its specialist care services, including for treatment of cardiovascular health, diabetes and prostate care. Of note, HHC’s Heart & Vascular Institute is a national leader in cardiovascular disease care and provides personalized treatment to more patients and performs more advanced cardiac procedures than any other cardiac program in Connecticut.
“This is how we transform healthcare, making it more affordable and more accessible,” said Karen Goyette, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer HHC. “Partnering with Hims & Hers means consumers can confidently have access to convenient and comprehensive care with both in-person and digital healthcare solutions — delivering more accessible, coordinated and personalized care to a broader population.”
Hims & Hers offers access to treatments for a broad range of conditions across sexual health, mental health, hair loss, and dermatology. In addition to HHC in Connecticut, the company also has relationships with other high-quality health systems, including Carbon Health in California; Oschner in Louisiana; Mount Sinai Health System in New York City; Privia in the District of Columbia, Georgia, Maryland, Texas, and Virginia; and ChristianaCare across areas in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
