NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AngelEye Health (“AngelEye” or the “Company”), a leading provider of patient and family engagement solutions for hospital neonatal, pediatric intensive care, and nursery units, today announced the completion of its Series B funding, bringing the Company’s funding to date to approximately $20M. The new financing will be used to accelerate the organization’s rapid expansion, including growing its team of talent and expanding its product research and development function. The Series B financing was led by Brad Whitmore and Mountain Group Partners (“MGP”), with participation from SeedtoB Capital and the Rash Family Office.
Since its launch in 2014, AngelEye has built a diverse portfolio of resources designed to support the current and future needs of the highly specialized NICU and PICU. The Company’s current offering includes four complementary solutions accessible on AngelEye's comprehensive HIPAA-compliant platform that features advanced communication and engagement resources for NICU clinical teams and the families that they support.
“AngelEye Health clearly has a differentiated platform and superior offering relative to its competitor’s product,” said Brad Whitmore. “The Company’s clinically focused approach and diverse team have enabled great success to this point – we look forward to supporting AngelEye with this financing as it works to further capitalize on the opportunity ahead.”
“Mountain Group Partners’ investment strategy has always focused squarely on supporting companies like AngelEye Heath that are developing transformational technologies that improve the lives of others,” said Byron Smith, Managing Director, Mountain Group Partners. “Since the onset of the pandemic, the full applicability of AngelEye’s family engagement solutions has been realized. Now, with this Series B funding, we are excited to partner with Bradford Whitmore, SeedtoB Capital and the Rash Family Office in support of what the AngelEye team is building to elevate the neonatal experience now and into the future.”
“SeedtoB invests where technological innovation meets a mission-driven mindset which is what made participation in AngelEye Health’s Series B an attractive opportunity for our firm,” said Eller Kelliher Partner, SeedtoB. “By empowering parents with innovative solutions that allow them to become a part of the care team throughout their child’s stay in the NICU or PICU, they are having a profound impact on the family’s hospital experience, as well as their journey home.”
“The Rash Family Office is dedicated to investing in companies who are changing how healthcare is delivered,” said Marty Rash, Rash Family Office. “In my long-term experience, I’ve learned what makes an impact in hospital settings. AngelEye Health’s relationship approach has differentiated it in the market and presents a compelling value proposition to hospitals, improves family satisfaction and enhances patient outcomes. I am excited that Emily Rash will be representing us on the Board of Directors.”
In the past three years alone, the Company has grown exponentially, more than tripling its annual revenue, growing its employee base to 39, a 5x increase since 2018, and expanding its extensive client list to 125+ partners across the U.S. With the proceeds from this Series B investment, AngelEye is well-positioned to expand on that success, growing its product offering and customer base to ensure that its hospital partners' needs are met.
“AngelEye Health understands the essential role that family-integrated care plays in all aspects of neonatal and pediatric care, and, as an organization, we are so proud of what we’ve accomplished to date making this a tangible reality for the hospital partners we serve,” said Christopher Rand, CEO, AngelEye Health. “We are looking forward to building off this success by continuing to grow and refine our product portfolio in order to meet the evolving needs of the hospital partners we serve.”
AngelEye has nearly a decade of experience in patient and family engagement in pediatric and neonatal intensive care environments. The Company’s proven family engagement platform integrates parents simply and seamlessly into the child’s care team, addressing bonding, patient progress and treatment communication, feeding, and focused education. In 2022, AngelEye is on pace to deliver nearly 10 million virtual bedside visits.
