Fast Growing Primary Care Disrupting $2.8 Trillion Healthcare Market

Fast growing primary care companies are disrupting the $2.8 trillion healthcare market.

1Life Healthcare (NASDAQ:ONEM) for example was quoted by Wall Street Reporter saying "we are now operating in 12 markets across the United States up 50% over the last 18 months. Throughout 2020, we have expanded into new markets in partnership with both new and existing health network partners by the end of 2021, we plan to have established physical presence in 17 markets, a 40% increase from our 12 markets today, and more than double the markets from where we were 18 months ago.”

Or, look at Oak Street Health (NYSE:OSH), whose “third quarter performance demonstrated the financial and operational strength of Oak Street's business model. We generated record revenue of $217.9 million, exceeding the top end of the guidance range we have communicated to investors. This represents an increase of 57% from third quarter 2019,” as also quoted by Wall Street Reporter.
