NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blink Health, the app that lets people get their prescription medications at much lower prices, announces today the opening of its new headquarters in New York City. The move will accommodate the company’s rapidly expanding teams, including significantly bolstered product and engineering divisions, which play critical roles in helping Americans access low prices on over 15,000 medications.
Blink Health has grown rapidly in the first several months of the year. The company has added seven new senior leaders, hired more than 50 engineers and 150 total employees in 2019 alone as it continues to expand to serve a growing network of over 750,000 customers. In addition to the new headquarters, Blink has also recently opened offices in Boston, Pittsburgh and St. Louis. The new office at 536 Broadway in SoHo is comprised of more than 45,000 square feet over three floors. The move provides Blink nearly 20,000 additional square feet of space compared to its prior location.
“Solving a problem as complicated as our country’s drug pricing crisis requires a top-tier team of talented, motivated professionals,” said Blink Health CEO and Co-Founder Geoffrey Chaiken. “In searching for a new company headquarters, we prioritized finding a space that will accommodate our continued expansion and that is located in a neighborhood that Blink team members find both dynamic and inspiring.”
Blink Health works by negotiating with the pharmacy industry and cutting out the middle men that are driving up the cost of prescriptions to provide everyone access to one low price on thousands of medications. Customers simply purchase their medications directly on Blink’s website or mobile app and then get their prescriptions by either picking them up at one of 35,000 participating pharmacies nationwide or having them delivered directly to their home for free. Blink's partners include Walmart, Costco, most major grocery chains and independent pharmacies around the country.
As prescription costs continue to rise, Blink fights for the lowest prices. That’s why the company recently announced a price reduction for nearly 150 generic medications including those within cardiovascular, mental health and gastrointestinal (GI) categories. Blink also recently announced the addition of 500 new medications to its list of drugs which qualify for free home delivery, bringing the company closer to achieving its mission of helping all Americans get the medications they need at an affordable price.
