Patients Served – In 2023, our reach touched the lives of nearly 21,000 patients and their families. This is 21,000 people who either did not have access to affordable mental health care or felt discouraged to seek help due to stigma around mental health. Instead, we turned their journeys of struggle into stories of triumph.

Team Growth – Our rapid growth isn’t about numbers; it’s about meeting patients’ needs in a time of crisis. From licensed therapists to administration to executive leadership, all 83 new hires joined evolvedMD knowing the current state of healthcare wasn’t cutting it.

Rising Stars – Committed to growing our people personally and professionally, we promoted 14 employees to elevated roles to recognize their passion, expertise, and impact that ultimately drive our mission forward.

New Partners – Leading primary care practices are first and foremost committed to meeting their patients’ evolving needs. This year, evolvedMD partnered with eight primary care groups to deliver tailored and impactful solutions that address whole-patient health.

New Clinics – Each new clinic is a doorway to progress. In 2023, 62 clinics swung their doors open to offer accessible, affordable, high-quality care at the primary care practice their patients trust most.
