Summer Health



Summer Health is a consumer-first, longitudinal pediatric care platform that leverages convenient text-based care and LLMs to efficiently meet the health needs of families and children. Through radically simplifying access to high-quality care through an on-demand text-first platform, Summer Health presents families, health plans, and employers with a meaningful value story.

The company’s service provides parents and caregivers 24/7 access to a national network of board-certified pediatricians who quickly find solutions to the frequent physical and emotional challenges that are an inevitable part of childhood. The service allows parents and caregivers to easily text pediatric-care physicians and get care in a matter of minutes, offering peace of mind, affordability, and access to accurate answers for acute and everyday pediatric needs, including sleep, nutrition, and lactation support. Today, Summer is available across all 50 states, is actively serving 1000s of paying users, and has completed a total of 17K+ visits despite spending minimal marketing dollars.

Founded in 2022, Summer Health was developed by Founder and CEO Ellen DaSilva whose own difficulties trying to find timely medical advice and care for her three young children served as inspiration for the business. In addition to her highly relevant personal experience, Ellen also brings a meaningful digital healthcare and consumer technology background that will serve the business as it scales. Ellen was an early employee at Hims & Hers, where she joined as the eighth employee serving as the Head of Strategic Partnerships and supporting the business through IPO.
