Intermountain Healthcare Innovation Fund

As part of our relationship with Intermountain Healthcare — a not-for-profit health system based in Salt Lake City, Utah — Healthbox is the general partner of the $35M Intermountain Healthcare Innovation Fund. The Fund’s mission is to source, evaluate, and invest in innovative companies that represent a high return, high growth opportunity and that align with Intermountain's mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible. The Fund invests in healthcare IT companies with a strong provider angle. The Fund is managed by Caroline Arenz, Leland Brewster, Dr. Eric Louie, Neil Patel, and Jeffrey Ries.

The Fund invests in healthcare IT companies with a strong provider angle that meet the following criteria:

  • Investment Size: Minimum investment of $1 million with a target of $3-5 million invested over the life of a portfolio company.

  • Company Stage: Majority of investments will fall within Series A – C, but the fund is stage agnostic.

  • Investment Scope: Capital efficient healthcare IT and services companies; pre-approval therapeutics, devices, and diagnostics will generally be considered out of scope; limited consideration may be given to FDA approved, or otherwise low regulatory risk, devices and diagnostics.
