About Us

Cayaba Care is building support services to reimagine how we manage acute illness and improve outcomes in complex populations. The US is one of the most dangerous developed countries to give birth and these poor maternal-fetal outcomes disproportionately impact minority women and underserved populations across major US cities.

Our team is focused on closing this gap through a combination of clinical and non-clinical services delivered in-home, virtually or in-office. Cayaba's care model focuses on integration not replacement of patients’ primary Obstetric provider and reducing any barriers to the patient receiving the recommended care.
