Simply Caring

Kinwell began with the simple goal of bringing a new option for primary care to communities across Washington.

We're a startup, determined to change the primary care experience.

More time, less complexity, more comfort, and—perhaps most important—a better relationship with your primary care team. Kinwell is based on the belief that healthcare is a conversation, not a transaction. We want to know your healthcare goals and help you achieve them. And we're changing the conversation around primary care to include nutrition, fitness, and behavioral health.
