CLEMSON, South Carolina — SiteLabs, Inc., an innovative South Carolina-based health tech startup, is excited to announce investment from Labcorp Venture Fund, building on an existing investment from SC Launch Inc. and a partnership with Cone Health Ventures in Greensboro, NC. This investment reaffirms the game-changing potential of SiteLabs’ vision: to increase access to healthcare through a nationwide network of independent pharmacies.
Seeing the need for more access to affordable health care, SiteLabs equips independent pharmacies to provide services patients need in their neighborhoods. Their testing platform allows pharmacists to test for common conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, strep throat, and others. It then facilitates the referral process to ensure patients are connected to additional care when necessary
“By partnering with independent pharmacies, SiteLabs is amplifying healthcare access in local communities, including those that are traditionally underserved, and ensuring patients are connected to the broader healthcare ecosystem,” said Darren Schaupp, CEO of SiteLabs, Inc.
David Heenan, Managing Director of Cone Health Ventures states, “This partnership will be strategic for health systems, like Cone Health, as SiteLabs revolutionizes healthcare access through their network of independent pharmacies that can screen and connect unengaged patients to healthcare more effectively and at lower cost.”
Looking ahead, SiteLabs is poised to play a pivotal role in the evolution of how patients access healthcare services. Through its collaboration with pharmacies and its strategic partners, the company is well on its way to making community-based healthcare more accessible and cost effective.
