Caring for women 65 and up, up, up
Women face unique social and medical challenges as they age, but most senior care is unfortunately one-size-fits-all. Herself Health was built to change that. Herself Health utilizes a holistic approach that goes beyond labs, medication, imaging, more doctors, and surgery and looks at the whole picture of a patient’s health and wellness, including mobility, mental health, social and behavioral health, the patient’s life journey, and quality of life. Herself Health is working to ensure each one of its patients is properly cared for, listened to, and supported through this stage of their lives.
“Women 65+ face unique health and social challenges as they age, and for far too long, their concerns, needs, and desires have been ignored,” said Kristen Helton, CEO of Herself Health. “That’s why we are designing Herself Health to be the value-based solution to improve outcomes and help women find joy, purpose, and better quality of life. Our fundamental goal is to elevate the patient experience and provide meaningful in-person and virtual support that provides women 65+ with a primary care experience designed specifically for them. In the few months since our launch, the incredible interest from patients clearly demonstrates that this model was desperately needed. This funding will allow us to expand our physical footprint, grow our digital, in-person, and community offerings and continue to build a world-class team of providers and experts to serve this community in the manner they deserve.”
The latest round comes just six months after the company raised $7M in Seed funding. Herself Health currently operates one clinic in St. Paul, Minnesota with plans to expand its footprint substantially over the coming 18 months.
