ImpactAlpha, August 23 – Nashville-based Thyme Care is building a network of oncology treatment and care providers to help lower-income, elderly or remote patients navigate a fragmented healthcare system. The company’s online service, Thyme Box, connects patients to doctors, specialists, and support services including transportation, housing, food, behavioral health, financial assistance and palliative care.
“The best medicine in the world isn’t effective if a patient can’t afford treatment or get a ride to the office,” said founder Bobby Green.
Town Hall Ventures and Foresite Capital co-led Thyme Care’s $60 million Series B round.
Town Hall, launched in 2018 by David Whelan, Trevor Price and Andy Slavitt, former head of the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services, invests in companies changing health delivery for vulnerable, underserved and low-income patients. It raised $350 million last year for its third fund.
