WelbeHealth Raises $15 Million Series B to Accelerate Growth of Innovative Care Programs for Seniors

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 30 giugno 2018

WelbeHealth, a healthcare services company delivering coordinated and value-based care to medically frail seniors, today announced that it raised a $15 million Series B financing. The financing was co-led by Longitude Capital and Ulysses Diversified Holdings (Ulysses) with participation from former Medicare Chief Andy Slavitt’s Town Hall Ventures, as well as existing investors F-Prime Capital and .406 Ventures. In conjunction with the financing, Gregory Grunberg, M.D., Managing Director of Longitude Capital, and Errik Anderson, Founder and Managing Partner of Ulysses, joined WelbeHealth’s board of directors.“We are thrilled to have the support of our new and our existing investors,” said Si France, M.D., co-founder and CEO of WelbeHealth. “The healthcare expertise Longitude and Ulysses bring to the company will be incredibly valuable as we seek to execute our mission of serving the most vulnerable seniors with greater quality and compassion in a value-based model.”The proceeds from the financing will be used to support the launch of WelbeHealth’s Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), which deliver comprehensive healthcare to the most vulnerable elderly patients. PACE serves medically frail, Medicare-Medicaid eligible seniors who would otherwise qualify to live in state-funded nursing homes. WelbeHealth’s model of care leverages industry leading technologies to support highly coordinated interdisciplinary care teams and cultivates a service-oriented mentality in attending to each individual patient’s health and social needs.WelbeHealth plans to open its first PACE organization to serve the Stockton and Modesto, Calif. area, the largest region in California without a PACE program. The program will provide thousands of medically frail seniors in the region with access to a suite of high quality healthcare services, including primary care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, social services, and dentistry. WelbeHealth’s coordinated and interdisciplinary approach helps keep patients in their homes and out of hospitals, nursing homes, and other care facilities, which benefits all stakeholders.

Death Senator Ted Kennedy

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 27 agosto 2009

Michelle and I were heartbroken to learn this morning of the death of our dear friend, Senator Ted Kennedy. For nearly five decades, virtually every major piece of legislation to advance the civil rights, health and economic well-being of the American people bore his name and resulted from his efforts. His ideas and ideals are stamped on scores of laws and reflected in millions of lives — in seniors who know new dignity; in families that know new opportunity; in children who know education’s promise; and in all who can pursue their dream in an America that is more equal and more just, including me. In the United States Senate, I can think of no one who engendered greater respect or affection from members of both sides of the aisle. His seriousness of purpose was perpetually matched by humility, warmth and good cheer. He battled passionately on the Senate floor for the causes that he held dear, and yet still maintained warm friendships across party lines. And that’s one reason he became not only one of the greatest senators of our time, but one of the most accomplished Americans ever to serve our democracy. I personally valued his wise counsel in the Senate, where, regardless of the swirl of events, he always had time for a new colleague. I cherished his confidence and momentous support in my race for the Presidency. And even as he waged a valiant struggle with a mortal illness, I’ve benefited as President from his encouragement and wisdom. His fight gave us the opportunity we were denied when his brothers John and Robert were taken from us: the blessing of time to say thank you and goodbye. The outpouring of love, gratitude and fond memories to which we’ve all borne witness is a testament to the way this singular figure in American history touched so many lives. For America, he was a defender of a dream. For his family, he was a guardian. Our hearts and prayers go out to them today — to his wonderful wife, Vicki, his children Ted Jr., Patrick and Kara, his grandchildren and his extended family. Today, our country mourns. We say goodbye to a friend and a true leader who challenged us all to live out our noblest values. And we give thanks for his memory, which inspires us still. Sincerely, (President Barack Obama)
