OCBJ - Concierge Health App Planned

OCBJ - Concierge Health App Planned

Friday, April 7, 2017

Former Alphaeon Corp. Chief Executive Robert Grant said he will launch an app this fall for consumers to schedule and access on-demand specialist physicians in fields such as orthopedics, cardiology and brain surgery.

The app will connect customers to about 1,500 specialists for urgent care and hospital concierge clinics in cities like New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami and Washington D.C.

The service costs $2,000 a year for an individual and $3,500 for a family.

Newport Beach-based Concierge Key Health LLC is developing the app. Concierge Key Health, like Alphaeon, is a subsidiary of Strathspey Crown Holdings LLC, according to filings. Funding for the app came from Dental Innovations in Germany and private investors.

Strathspey Crown, a Newport Beach-based investment firm, describes itself as a “self-pay healthcare-focused growth holding company” on its website.

Grant resigned as chief executive after three years at Alphaeon, the Irvine-based “lifestyle healthcare” company that primarily focuses on aesthetic medicine. He was replaced by Murthy Simhambhatla in August.

He also headed the aesthetic division of Allergan Inc. in Irvine, prior to its purchase by what is now Dublin, Ireland-based Allergan PLC.
