Tia, the women’s health company pioneering a “whole-woman, whole-life” hybrid care model raised its $100M Series B back in 2021. After expanding its offering to include fertility services, the company is now teaming up with Cedars-Sinai, one of California’s leading health systems, to expand access to primary and specialty care for women across Los Angeles. Together, the two healthcare companies will provide and enhance high-quality physical, mental and reproductive healthcare for more than 100,000 women throughout the Los Angeles region.
Tia also opened its second Los Angeles-area clinic, in Santa Monica, in collaboration with Cedars-Sinai, following the success of its first local clinic in Silver Lake in 2021. Tia will partner with Cedars-Sinai to open additional clinics this year in Pasadena, Studio City and Culver City.
“Cedars-Sinai and Tia share a common vision to elevate women’s healthcare by expanding access to high-quality, comprehensive care,” said Sarah Kilpatrick, MD, PhD, chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Cedars-Sinai. “As a national leader in women’s health, we are pleased to continue elevating options for our patients. We look forward to making primary and specialty care services available to more women in the community.”
Tia’s signature “Whole Woman, Whole Life” care model blends virtual and in-person services, fusing primary care, mental health, and gynecological care with wellness services like acupuncture in one integrated experience. Cedars-Sinai will provide specialty care for patients through its high-quality network of specialty providers and inpatient services. Cedars-Sinai has distinguished itself as one of the top providers for women’s healthcare in a number of important specialties, including women’s heart health, obstetrics, women’s cancer and minimally invasive gynecological surgery. By connecting these and other programs to Tia’s comprehensive women’s primary care model, the organizations will provide Los Angeles women with coordinated and connected care.
“Creating a new standard of care for women requires building bridges with leading health systems. That’s why we’re thrilled to team up with the renowned women’s health leader Cedars-Sinai, one of the top hospitals in California and the nation,” said Carolyn Witte, co-founder and CEO of Tia. “Together we’ll not only expand access to comprehensive women’s healthcare in a market with major primary care and OB-GYN shortages, but we’ll also work together to defragment women’s health by integrating primary and specialty, virtual and in-person, and outpatient and inpatient care. With Cedars-Sinai’s unmatched commitment to clinical quality, compassion and innovation, I’m confident that we can make healthcare work better for women and our communities.”
Tia has grown rapidly over the last year and now has operations in California, New York and Arizona. Cedars-Sinai is the third major health system to work directly with Tia. The company recently announced a deal with UCSF Health to open 10 clinics in the Bay Area, and previously signed a deal with CommonSpirit to also launch clinics, with the first opening in Phoenix in November 2021.
