Amazon Makes Deeper Health Push with $3.49 Billion One Medical Deal
Amazon.com has agreed to buy primary care firm One Medical for $3.49 billion, adding brick-and-mortar doctors' offices to its portfolio. "We think healthcare is high on the list of experiences that need reinvention," said Neil Lindsay, senior vice president of Amazon Health Services. In One Medical, Amazon is aiming to acquire a company with brand-name customers such as Airbnb and Google, according to its website. One Medical is a primary care provider that offers both telehealth services and options to meet doctors in person at its 182 offices, scattered across 25 markets in the United States.
