Connecticut first lady is a major VC healthcare investor

One of the nation's leading healthcare investors is also the first lady of the state of Connecticut, Hartford Business Journal reported Dec. 5.

Annie Lamont, the wife of Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont, works for venture capital firm Oak HC/FT, whose portfolio includes primary care firm VillageMD; dieting app Noom; home healthcare company DispatchHealth; and palliative care provider Aspire Health.

Her healthcare investing strategy? "More access, higher quality, lower cost," she told the news outlet.

She pointed to VillageMD as an example of that approach. The company, which is majority owned by Walgreens, has providers spend extra time with patients to coordinate care and chooses specialists based on value rather than payer networks.

Ms. Lamont was the inaugural recipient of the National Venture Capital Association’s Award for Excellence in Healthcare Innovation and received the Healthcare Private Equity Association’s Russell L. Carson Award for Lifetime Achievement in Healthcare Investing, according to the story. She has also been on lists of the top venture capitalists from The New York Times, Forbes and CB Insights.
