Disrupting health care’s status quo
Spectrum Health Ventures (SHV) was founded in 2017 to manage a $100 million fund on behalf of Spectrum Health, an integrated health system based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The fund is designed to achieve venture-class returns and create alternative revenue streams through investments that drive innovative health solutions and align strategically with Spectrum Health’s core businesses, mission and vision.
SHV offers investment capital combined with an integrated health system’s expertise to entrepreneurs and companies that are transforming health care’s status quo. Companies that partner with us can pilot their technologies in the real-world environment.
SHV is a member of AVIA, a Chicago-based organization that works with large health systems across the United States to identify key industry trends, locate companies that are addressing those trends, and provide recommendations and due diligence on which companies may be worthy of investment consideration.
SHV investment opportunities include partnering with other health care organizations in new ventures; investing in new research, products, services and emerging technologies; and bringing our own products to market.
We focus on the Quadruple Aim of simultaneously improving the health of the population, enhancing the patient and consumer experience, improving the physician and provider experience, and reducing the per capita cost of care for the benefit of the communities we serve.
