Qliance Medical Management — a Seattle-based healthcare startup originally backed by investors including Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, TV personality Drew Carey and computer mogul Michael Dell — closed its six primary care clinics suddenly this week, saying the company would shut down June 15 due to financial difficulties.  Now more details are emerging. Qliance co-founder and CEO Erika Bliss told GeekWire this morning that the company’s lender made an “unauthorized withdrawal” of about $200,000 from a Qliance bank account on May 12, causing the sudden shutdown.
