The Carlyle Group Invests in One Medical, the Largest Independently Held, Technology-Enabled Primary Care Practice in the U.S.


Carlyle’s Global Platform and Deep Industry Expertise To Help Grow and Scale the Business

New York, NY – Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group (NASDAQ: CG) today announced that it is making a significant minority investment of up to $350 million into 1Life Healthcare, the technology and management company behind One Medical, to support the company’s growth. One Medical is the largest independently held primary care practice in the U.S. The company is working to transform health care by making high-quality primary care personal, accessible and affordable.

One Medical CEO Amir Dan Rubin said, “Partnering with Carlyle, given their extensive network and significant resources, will fuel our next stage of growth and innovation. Carlyle has a deep understanding of the health care sector and a track record of helping to build market-leading companies, while maintaining the highest levels of quality and patient support.”

Ram Jagannath, Managing Director on Carlyle’s Healthcare team, said, “We are excited to partner with Amir Dan Rubin and the One Medical team to continue growing and building out the platform. The company has developed an innovative, membership-based model that key stakeholders — including patients, providers, employers and health systems — find highly compelling. One Medical’s combination of best-in-class service and seamlessly integrated technology is delighting patients in an increasingly frustrating primary care environment. We look forward to working with the company to bring the One Medical brand and experience to more patients across the country.”

Founded in 2007, One Medical is reimagining primary care by improving the quality, service and affordability of care through a technology-enabled model. The company provides service in nine metropolitan regions: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, San Diego and Washington, DC. In addition to its consumer membership model, more than 1,000 companies have added One Medical to their health benefits packages, giving employees unparalleled, integrated access to near-site primary care, 24/7 virtual care and even on-site care that helps them improve population health and decrease overall health care costs. Health systems are now also partnering with One Medical as they acknowledge the value of having high-quality longitudinal, preventative care in their networks.

Bruce Dunlevie, Partner at Benchmark Capital and current 1Life Healthcare board member, said, “We are excited to have Carlyle join the 1Life Healthcare Board and investor group to help advance One Medical’s mission to transform health care. The primary proceeds from Carlyle’s investment will help fund One Medical’s go-forward expansion, while the Carlyle team’s experience building successful health care companies will serve as a valuable asset for the company.”

Equity for the transaction comes from Carlyle Partners VII, an $18.5 billion fund that makes majority and strategic minority investments primarily in the U.S. across five industries. The investment in One Medical is a continuation of Carlyle’s long-term global commitment to health care, in which it has invested more than $11 billion of equity since inception. Carlyle’s significant experience investing in the healthcare space includes MedRisk, Albany Molecular Research, PPD, WellDyneRx, Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, Rede D'Or São Luiz, Healthscope, Qualicorp, MultiPlan, and most recently, Millicent Pharma.

Latham & Watkins LLP served as legal advisor to Carlyle.
