Enterprise Profile 

Medical Life Holdings develops and manages healthcare companies committed to making healthcare more efficient and valuable. The portfolio offers a combination of services necessary to drive value in the healthcare value chain.

Founded in 2007 by Board Certified Emergency Medicine Physicians, we believe patients deserve access to the right care, at the right time, and in the right place, and if accomplished, it will be the right price. We knew that being sick was scary, and that each company we develop must be dedicated to providing care that creates peace of mind. Our teams of dedicated emergency medicine specialists leverage technology, data analytics, proprietary provider training, SDoH, and robust care orchestration to improve patient well-being and yield actuarially verified medical cost control.

Crucial Care Emergency Facilities are payer friendly outpatient emergency facilities that create actuarially validated savings of greater than $20M per facility per year. Crucialist and Crucialist Kidney Care provide 24/7 access to Board Certified Emergency Medicine physicians with Care Orchestration between other value-based providers.
