09 Feb Ranger Health’s On-Demand House Call Service Set to Become FetchMD with Official Name Change
Two-year old technology and service company prepares for rapid expansion
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Ranger Health, the innovative on-demand healthcare and technology service company based in San Antonio, is officially changing the name of its popular on-call service to FetchMD and expanding into Austin and several other markets in 2018.
According to Michael C. Zucker, FACHE, Ranger Health Founder and CEO, the branding evolution and name change reflect the company’s expansion of its direct to consumer offering and the overwhelmingly positive response to their house call service.
“FetchMD is both figurative and literal in meaning, while also being an easy way describe our on-call service. Just like earlier generations used to ”fetch” a doctor for a house call, we have modernized that concept for the digital age and now one can “fetch” a Physician Assistant (PA) or Nurse Practitioner on our mobile app for everything from strep throat to stiches.”
The FetchMD logo will replace the Ranger Health logo on all of the company’s branded vehicles that can currently be seen on highways and neighborhood streets across San Antonio and the surrounding five county region. All social and digital assets including website, the app itself, and the company’s Facebook page will also reflect the new FetchMD brand.
“We are truly redefining the healthcare experience from one that was complicated and inconvenient to one that is simple, fast and affordable. Most importantly, it gives the consumer more control – when someone is sick or has a minor injury, FetchMD comes to them when and where they want to be seen. The customer experience and convenience factor are what have led to a loyal and highly engaged customer following that uses our services repeatedly,” said Zucker.
“Our on-demand house call service has grown significantly this past year along the burgeoning I-35 corridor, and we’re seeing increasing numbers of requests from consumers in the Austin region. The company will begin Austin operations in January 2018. ”
Following FetchMD’s launch in the Austin market, users will experience robust technology enhancements to the app that will leverage the shared economy of healthcare professionals in the region, and that will further enhance the consumer experience.
“FetchMD will transform the way people will access care. It will also allow healthcare professionals to engage directly with consumers in a way that allows them to have more control of their schedules. Our innovative FetchMD technology platform will enable us to aggressively expand across Texas and the Southwest region of the United States,” said Zucker.
