“Experity’s vision has always been to partner with urgent care operators and give them the right tools to focus on what matters most, the patient. This is Experity’s second growth investment partner, and to me, this signals the importance of on-demand care and fueling the patient-centered healthcare revolution,” said David Stern, CEO of Experity. “This investment from GTCR is a major milestone in Experity’s journey – giving us the resources that we need to continue operating as the trusted business advisor to our industry and clients.”
GTCR and Experity plan to continue to invest in the company’s differentiated software offering, and partner with Experity’s experienced team to drive innovation and deepen utilization of the platform, particularly as customer needs for such tools continue to grow behind expanding patient volumes.

Experity has delivered incredible value to the urgent care sector through the development of innovative and value-additive solutions, and we look forward to further enabling better access to care for all individuals and communities nationwide.”
“We are excited to have the combined capability of two world-class investors to provide industry-leading innovation and investment to help Experity amplify its position as the industry leader they are today,” said Vishnu Menon, Managing Director, Warburg Pincus. “With the support of GTCR, we believe Experity is well-positioned to continue advancing the future of on-demand and urgent care services,” added Andrew Park, Managing Director, Warburg Pincus. “By purchasing Experity, urgent care’s operating system, GTCR is investing in the company’s continued growth, which in turn, is an investment in the future of urgent care,” added Michael Ding, Principal, Warburg Pincus.
