Alto Pharmacy

After discovering that half of all prescriptions aren’t even picked up—resulting in 125,000 avoidable deaths every year—we set out to build a new kind of pharmacy that focuses on the person behind every prescription.

Here at Alto, we’re transforming a $500 billion industry by reinventing what a pharmacy can do—from hand-delivering medications for free to offering on-call help by text or chat. Our customers are at the center of everything we do, and it shows. After delivering more than one million prescriptions, we have an NPS score of 86 and over a thousand five-star reviews on Yelp.

In addition to delivering a better pharmacy experience for everyone who needs medicine, we’re committed to cultivating a better workplace for for our team, every day. That’s why we’re honored to be recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Startup Employers in 2021, ranking 13th among 60 healthcare startups. Inclusion on the list was based on professional reputation, employee satisfaction, and growth, among other criteria. 

This accolade follows several others in recent months including LinkedIn’s Top Startups in 2020 and San Francisco Business Times Largest Bay Area Digital Health Companies in 2020. In addition, Alto’s CEO, Matt Gamache-Asselin, recently received recognition as one of The Top 25 Consumer Health Tech Executives of 2020 by The Healthcare Technology Report. 

“We have a lot to be proud of in the past year, especially in light of the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic,” shared Gamache-Asselin. “I’m so proud of the hard work and commitment exhibited by every member of our team in providing exceptional pharmacy care in our communities. As we continue to expand our services to more and more people, we’ll also be growing our team of incredibly knowledgeable and caring professionals.”
