CareDash, a venture-backed startup located in Cambridge, MA, is America's fastest growing healthcare review website with over 1.5 million users each month. We launched in 2016 to address two troubling trends in the healthcare space: review sites catered to patients of a higher socioeconomic status and too many existing sites accepting financial compensation in exchange for the removal of negative reviews. Since 2016, we've built CareDash into the most transparent, accessible, and inclusive healthcare review site and have empowered millions of users to feel informed and confident making important decisions about their healthcare. Join our team and help us further our mission. Trusted reviews. Trusted care.
