Hydreight plans to add a direct sales team to increase white label clients, targeting national med spa franchises by leveraging its mobile clinical network, proprietary technology platform, and pharmacy network. The Company will continue working on strategic tuck-in acquisitions to add more nurses on the platform quickly, as well as significant margin expansion in its pharmacy division.

Shane Madden, CEO of Hydreight commented, “We are building one of the largest mobile clinical network in the United States and 2023 was a transformative year with significant growth across the entire business. Throughout the entire year, we made incredible advances in our technology platform, medical network, pharmacy distribution and product offering. We made important investments in ongoing legal and compliance which have already proven to be beneficial to the business and will continue to support our growth long term. The accomplishments during the year were numerous, and I am proud of the team for their execution and delivery. Although 2023 was a pivotal year for us, we are just getting started, and I know that 2024 will be another strong year for the Company. We spent the last couple of years building the infrastructure and foundational pillars of our mobile network, now we must be laser focused on scale and growth, quickly. On behalf of the Hydreight team, we would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!”
