ZoomCare (stylized as ZOOM+care) is a Portland, Oregon-based chain of health care clinics. The company has 37 clinics in the U.S. states of Oregon and Washington, as of December 2018.[1]

Zoom was co-founded by Dave Sanders and Albert DiPiero in 2006.[2] Bill Frerichs began serving as chief executive officer in December 2018.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

Clinic in Portland, Oregon's Woodstock neighborhood, 2013

ZoomCare's first clinic was opened in Tigard, Oregon, in 2006.[4] The company opened its eighth clinic in 2011.[5] In 2012, ZoomCare began offering medical care at no cost at one location for one evening each month.[6]

The company made a minority equity deal with Endeavour Capital in mid 2014.[7] ZoomCare operated 23 clinics in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho at the time.[8] The company also started offering insurance in 2014,[9] but left the market by December 31, 2017.[10][11] Zoom Health had approximately 2,700 customers.[12]

In March 2015, ZoomCare announced a nine-location expansion.[13] The company announced a name change to as well as business model changes in May,[14] becoming known as Zoom+ Performance Health Insurance.[15] By mid 2015, there were 21 clinics in the Portland metropolitan area and Salem, plus six in Seattle.[9]

The company does not accept Medicare or Medicaid insurance, as of mid 2016.[16][17] In July 2016, ZoomCare settled a trademark infringement lawsuit brought by Blue Cross and Blue Shield in 2015.[18][19][20]

ZoomCare was subpoenaed for medical records by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in mid 2017.[21] The company also settled with Oregon insurance officials over a financial statement discrepancy in 2017.[22] In October, Endeavour decided to invest $24 million in ZoomCare, after setting a dispute out of court.[23][24] ZoomCare was profitable in 2017.[25] The company and Aetna partnered on Aetna Whole Health in 2018.[26]

PeaceHealth, based in Vancouver, Washington, acquired Zoom in December 2018.[1][27]

ZoomCare won in the "Best Primary Doctor" category in Willamette Week's 2017 readers' poll.[28]
