Acquired by
Crossover Health

On February 7, 2019 Sherpaa was acquired by Crossover Health for an undisclosed amount of money. Prior to being acquired by Crossover Health Sherpa raised a total of $8 million in venture capital funding. The CEO and co-founder of Crossover Health, Dr. Scott Shreeve, made the following statement about his company acquiring Sherpaa:

Our physicians work in designated care teams for a defined group of patients. So a primary care physician would sit right next to a behavioral health therapist, who sits next to the health coach — they literally physically sit together. As we look at incorporating Sherpaa into our business, what we will be creating is a virtual primary care practice, which will be staffed by virtualists. Now what’s interesting is they aren’t home by themselves on their computers; they’re actually physically co-located and we’re actually building a virtual care center in New York to complement our in-person physical center.
