The program recognizes companies, CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, entrepreneurs, and other leaders driving innovation in North Texas across 18 different categories. CEO and co-founder Luke Hejl accepted the award at a Jan. 11 ceremony.
It was TimelyMD’s second innovation award from D CEO in less than two months. In November, America’s best regional business magazine honored the company for outstanding “Achievement in Innovation” at its 2021 Excellence in Healthcare Awards celebration.
As the first and leading telehealth company to exclusively serve college students, TimelyMD operates as a digital extension of campus health, well-being and counseling centers. Founded in 2017, TimelyMD was the only higher-ed specific virtual care provider on the market when the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
Now TimelyMD partners with 150 campuses across the country— including Duke University, Emory University, Georgetown University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Notre Dame, University of Virginia and Washington University—to provide 24/7 virtual medical and mental health care to students anytime, anywhere. A $60 million round of Series B funding in 2021 underscored the urgency of the company’s vision to empower students to be well and thrive during an ongoing global pandemic and unrelenting campus mental health crisis.
“The passion and dedication our team brings to chasing TimelyMD’s mission to improve the health and well-being of college students are unparalleled,” Hejl said. “We are grateful that so many colleges and universities trust TimelyMD to provide complete clinical care, advanced technology, and expert guidance to improve their students’ physical and mental health, and we thank D CEO and Dallas Innovates for recognizing our leadership and innovation.”
