Solv Raises $45Million In Series C Funding To Accelerate Growth Of Its National Network Of Providers, Leading The Way For Consumer Driven And Digital First Healthcare
New funding, led by Acrew Capital and Corner Ventures, will expand access to high-quality, convenient, and transparent healthcare to more Americans
Solv, a national network of healthcare providers making same-day and next-day healthcare accessible to anyone, announced the close of its $45 Million Series C funding round led by Acrew Capital and Corner Ventures. Other participants include prior investors Greylock Partners and Benchmark Capital. The funding will support the company’s expansion of its national network of healthcare providers, consumer-driven healthcare offerings like same-day in person appointments and virtual care, and increased cost transparency for patients.
“At Solv, we see an opportunity to push the industry towards a more digital, consumer-focused, and accessible reality,” said Solv CEO and co-founder, Heather Fernandez. “Just as the financial crisis changed consumer expectations and drove innovation in fintech, we are seeing the same trends in healthcare because of the COVID-19 pandemic. By placing patients front and center, both sides of the healthcare system benefit, and we can move the industry closer to the future we are working to build.”
Today, 1 in 16 Americans have used Solv to schedule care, making same-day appointments with just a few taps of a phone, reducing their in-office wait-time by filling out digital forms pre-appointment, and texting with their provider. Over 100 million Americans live within five miles of a same-day appointment with Solv.

Solv’s technology and speed of execution addresses critical needs in healthcare during a time of new and evolving consumer demand.”
