Herself Health, a healthcare startup focused women’s healthcare for women 65+, has announced the successful completion of a $26 million Series A funding round.
Led by Michael Cline of Accretive, with participation from Juxtapose, the funding will enable femtech startup to revolutionize healthcare for older women by expanding its clinic network, enhancing digital and in-person services, and building a team of skilled healthcare professionals.
Founded in 2022 by CEO Kristen Helton, Herself Health aims to fill the gap in the healthcare system by offering value-based care tailored specifically for women’s healthcare for women 65+. The company recognizes the unique health and social challenges faced by this demographic.
It provides a comprehensive care model considering mobility, mental health, social and behavioral well-being, and the patient’s life journey. Herself Health aims to improve outcomes and help women in this age group find joy, purpose, and a better quality of life through its holistic approach.
Expanding Clinic Network and Service Offerings
With the new funding, the healthtech startup plans to expand its footprint significantly over the next 18 months. The company will open two more clinics in the broader Minneapolis-St. Paul region in 2023 and explore additional clinic locations based on patient demand.
In addition to physical clinics, the startup will expand its virtual care offerings to provide convenient access to women’s healthcare for women 65+. Herself Health differentiates itself from traditional primary care providers by placing a strong emphasis on women’s holistic health and well-being.
The company addresses specific health issues that are more prevalent in older women, such as osteoporosis, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s.
Women in this age group often face challenges, including being misdiagnosed, ignoring their concerns, and not receiving appropriate healthcare for chronic heart disease or following a stroke.
The startup aims to change this narrative by providing personalized care and prioritizing the unique needs of women aged 65 and above.
A Promising Investment and Future Prospects
Completing the Series A funding round signifies the investors’ confidence in Herself Health’s mission and potential to transform healthcare for older women.
Michael Cline of Accretive, the lead investor for the round, expressed his excitement about working alongside Herself Health and the outstanding team behind the company.
He said that Herself Health’s differentiated primary care services have the power to fundamentally change the healthcare experience for women 65+ across the United States and initiate a long-overdue conversation about their health and wellness needs.
The future looks promising for Herself Health as it continues to grow and expand its services. By combining physical clinics, virtual care options, and community engagement, the company will provide a comprehensive and patient-centered approach to primary care for women aged 65 and above.
Herself Health aims to elevate the patient experience and provide personalized care that empowers women 65+ to lead fulfilling lives with optimal health and well-being.
