About Sitka

At Sitka, they believe that EVERYONE deserves access to specialized healthcare.

Founded in late 2018 by Founder/CEO Kelsey Mellard, their mission is to foster informed, effective and trusted care delivery for all patients by every provider. Timely access to specialty care is often out of reach for too many Americans, often because of the inefficiencies of the delivery system. Sitka is reimagining specialty care by giving primary care providers (PCPs) access to network of specialist physicians. Their platform enables virtual consults for patient diagnosis and care between PCPs and specialists. With Sitka, patients avoid unnecessary specialist visits and receive answers in hours, not weeks, all while keeping PCPs at the helm.

Their women-led leadership team has decades of experience in medicine, technology, policy, and product to help address what they already knew to be true: the current healthcare system deserves thoughtful innovation. In addition, investors are leaders in investing in early-stage healthcare companies. Most recently they closed Series A round of $14 million led by Venrock.

Sitka is committed to bringing a diverse and inclusive team together focused on solving specialized healthcare.
