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 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.
