About CurativeCurative was founded in March 2020 to scale COVID-19 testing. Less than a year later, the company does 5-10% of all US COVID-19 testing through a network of over 10,000 testing sites and three high-capacity labs. Curative takes a full-stack approach—we build our own software, develop our own tests, and run our own testing sites. We believe that through unwavering optimism, focus on the patient experience, and a rejection of diagnostics “as it should be” we can get rid of COVID-19 and make healthcare better for all.
