About Hopscotch Health

It's a great day to
make a life better.

At Hopscotch, we’re on a mission to transform rural health in America. Learn about our story, what we believe, and meet our leaders.
Our story
We founded Hopscotch to transform rural healthcare across America through advanced primary care.

To make this happen, we knew we were going to have to build something that did not already exist: a company built with purpose and mission, that leverages the strength of communities we seek to serve, combined with incredible skill and expertise around operations and technology to enable better things for patients, caregivers, clinicians, and communities.  

To us, the name Hopscotch represents the simplicity and accessibility we believe healthcare should have and restores the fun, nimble quickness, and passion to an industry otherwise known for complexity.

What we believe
At Hopscotch, our true north is serving our patients and the care teams who serve them. Our culture is what unifies us, underpins everything we do, and ultimately lays the foundation for us to achieve our mission and vision.

We believe that when you invest in culture, commit to values, and hand good people possibility, great things happen.
