New Orleans-Based Healthcare Startup Ready Raises $54 Million

On-demand healthcare service Ready, which is headquartered in New Orleans, has raised $54 million. The funding will be used to expand operations for the fast-growing company.

“With this financing, we can expand our service offerings, bring more quality care directly to more patients and keep building a team of talented individuals who share our values and believe in our mission,” said Ready CEO Justin Dangel.

The company’s mission is to transform healthcare by making it more accessible to all. Ready dispatches trained healthcare professionals to deliver care to patients with non-emergency medical needs, and then uses video chat technology to connect the patient to a doctor or nurse practitioner for additional assistance. 

In addition to operations in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Shreveport, Ready also serves Washington, D.C. and cities in California, Florida, Maryland, Nevada, and New York.

“Ready’s growth echoes the desire in communities across the country to receive healthcare in a safe and personalized way,” continued Dangel.
