October 13, 2011

Utrecht – Gilde Healthcare Partners has raised more than €50 million for its Gilde Healthcare Services fund. The fund invests growth capital in specialist clinics, elderly care, primary care, disease prevention, mental health, service laboratories and other healthcare service sectors.

“Innovative, expanding healthcare companies are in need of capital investment to support growth and this type of finance is often difficult to source from banks and governments in the current economic climate”

says Managing Partner Pieter van der Meer.

“As a value added partner providing growth capital Gilde can support the growth of various healthcare services companies.”, according to Jasper van Gorp, partner of the fund, “We are particularly focused on companies that provide quality care in a cost effective way.”

In 2010, the Gilde Healthcare Services fund invested in Stepping Stones Home & Care, a chain of small scale nursing homes for the elderly. The fund expects to announce an additional new investment in the coming weeks.

The fund complements existing Gilde Healthcare funds, which invest in companies developing medicines, diagnostic products and medical devices.
