Cricket Health is a specialty kidney care provider

We believe in patient intervention well before kidney failure when there is still opportunity to improve quality of life, health outcomes, and control costs.

We are combining and fully integrating traditional medical practices with new modes of technology-enabled education and telemedicine into one seamless experience leading to healthier patient outcomes.

Founded in 2015, we are based in San Francisco, CA. The company’s team and advisors include leaders in healthcare, technology and design from Stanford, UCSF, DaVita, and LinkedIn.

We exist to help our patients live their best lives

We empower our patients. We listen to their stories, understand what matters to them, and are guided by their experiences. We don’t label people as non compliant. We win if our patients win.

We take it personally

We care deeply about our patients, colleagues and communities. We take responsibility and get it done.

We bring joy to this work

We are relentlessly optimistic. We celebrate the big and small wins along the way.

We value each individual’s unique journey

We welcome different people, experiences and points of view at our table

Humility is a source of our strength

We are curious and committed to learning. No big egos.

Everyone is worthy

Every person deserves love, kindness and respect.

We dare mighty things

Things need to change. Big change demands bold action.
