Company Overview

  • Founded in 2015, DocGo offers integrated, digital-first medical mobility services with superior on-demand service response and enhanced transparency including real-time vehicle location and accurate estimated arrival times.
  • Working together with licensed practitioners, the Company's last-mile TeleHealth Plus solutions leverage DocGo's technology, infrastructure, and staff of more than 1,700 paramedics and EMTs (emergency medical technicians) to fulfill the promise of telehealth by enabling the delivery of quality healthcare to patients in a convenient, affordable, and resource-optimized way.
  • TeleHealth Plus services include testing, vaccinations, bloodwork, IV hydration, wound care, mobile imaging and EKGs, among many others.

These strategic long-term relationships provide a predictable and recurring revenue base and serve as anchor customers with dependable start-up revenues in new geographic markets as the Company expands its U.S. footprint.
  • DocGo participates in a $95 billion addressable market and currently operates in 23 states in the U.S. and in the U.K.

The Company generated preliminary 2020 revenue of $94 million, nearly double 2019 revenue of $48 million.

Management Comments

Stan Vashovsky, co-founder and CEO of DocGo, said:"DocGo was built to bring a digital-first approach to last-mile telehealth and integrated medical mobility services that bridge the gap between physical and virtual care. The unique combination of our proprietary technology platform and care logistics expertise, along with our highly trained and motivated base of dedicated field professionals, has led to increased satisfaction and improved outcomes for patients as well as to superior service and lower cost for providers and payers. We are taking traditional healthcare beyond the walls of hospitals and clinics and offering in-home healthcare services at affordable price points to the broader community. We believe our rebranding to DocGo is representative of our mission. We are excited to partner with Motion and our new investors to realize DocGo's full potential as a public company."

Michael Burdiek, CEO and Director of Motion Acquisition Corp., said:"Motion has been seeking to partner with a vertical market leader at the intersection of mobility and technology. With a highly experienced management team, best-in-class partners, proprietary technology, and an innovative, scalable business model, we believe DocGo represents a tremendous opportunity in a large and attractive market. DocGo has a proven growth strategy and profitable CapEx-light business model, and the Company is now aggressively expanding its geographic footprint to service the contracted demand from its anchor customers. We look forward to working with Stan and the entire DocGo team to help bring enhanced healthcare mobility services to the comfort of patients' homes across a rapidly expanding geographic footprint."
