In December 2020, the healthcare provider for lower-income communities closed a $160 million Series C financing round to take its valuation of more than $1 billion.

The healthcare provider plans to use the proceeds from the Series C extension to expedite the deployment of its community and value-based care model across the US.

Currently, Cityblock caters to 70,000 members across New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Washington, DC.

Iyah Romm – CEO and Co-Founder of Cityblock said: “We’re incredibly proud and grateful that some of the world’s best and brightest healthcare minds have joined us.

“But more than anything, we’re excited for what this level of capital investment means for our member population. It’s clear that there is increased awareness of this massive problem of health inequity. We’re starting to see urgency from investors and industry leaders alike.”
