Brooklyn health startup raises $65M for tech-driven community care

Cityblock, a Brooklyn health company devoted to using technology to care for low-income patients with complex conditions, has raised $65 million in a Series B round, its founder announced on Medium.

The company, founded in 2017, set up its first location in Crown Heights in partnership with EmblemHealth's AdvantageCare Physicians. Emblem was the first insurer to agree to have Cityblock manage the health of its members.

It also has expanded to Waterbury, Conn., working with EmblemHealth's ConnectiCare, and plans to grow in North Carolina later this year through a deal with Blue Cross and Blue Shield. The company has now raised about $88 million in total.
