About Us

LET’S TAKE CONTROL OF OUR OWN HEALTH

Everyone is saying that healthcare is broken. We're here to fix it.

We believe healthcare should be unconditional. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you get up to in your own time. You deserve to be treated quickly and with compassion. That’s why we’re pioneering a new type of healthcare that’s easier and smarter, one in which vital medications and tests are accessible and affordable to everyone. No ifs, no buts.

Life can be complicated.
Taking care of yourself shouldn't be.

Nurx is built to deliver on the three things everyone needs from their healthcare. Choice, so you can make positive decisions about your own body. Control, so you can plan ahead and look after yourself without complication. And freedom, so your access to medication is never blocked by cost, bureaucracy, geography, stigma, or anything else.

Who we are

Founded by Hans Gangeskar and Dr. Edvard Engesæth, the Nurx team is comprised of world class physicians, business leaders, and industry experts.

Together we're working to make healthcare more accessible and simpler for everyone.

In This Together

We partner with patients, doctors, nurses and our employees to win as a team.

We own and take accountability for all of our own actions. We look past our day to day job to understand the bigger picture. We have an ownership mindset allowing us to do our best at every mission we set out to accomplish. Our individual goal is always to exceed expectations. We go beyond.

Do the Right Thing

We act with integrity, honesty and ethics. We encourage open communication and question ideas and actions inconsistent with our values. We are good stewards of the company and its assets. We play to win, but we play fair.

WE’RE ON A MISSION TO TRANSFORM HEALTHCARE
