Holland Venture provides growth capital to rehabilitation clinic Ortius

Amsterdam, January 11th 2018 – Private equity firm Holland Venture provides growth capital to Ortius, a progressive clinic providing specialised pain rehabilitation treatments. The investment allows Ortius to further develop their provided care and therefore realise their growth ambitions.

Founded in December 2016, Ortius, is an independent rehabilitation clinic specialised in the treatment of chronic pain- and pain-fatigue complaints. With 110 professionals Ortius delivers interdisciplinary care in 6 treatment centers in the Northern, Middle and Southern regions of the Netherlands.

Positive health
Pain complaints have a substantial impact on both the welfare of people and their environment. Ortius strives to make patients more self-reliant and let them take back control of their life. By being aware of the patients’ vulnerability and by using their personal strengths and personal values, patients can again play an active role in society. The content of the provided care aligns with the vision from physician and researcher Machteld Huber on positive healthcare. This vision encompasses resilience and bringing back meaning to life, both factors considered as the two most significant healing factors.

Enhanced quality and reduced healthcare expenses
“With the participation of Holland Venture, Ortius acquired a new strong partner with experience in the healthcare sector and at the same time we allowed to further develop ourselves. Together with Holland Venture, and with Ortius’ inspiring and adaptive way of working, we can contribute to the quality of care, the reduction of healthcare costs and the increase of labor productivity in the Netherlands”, according to Oscar Westerhof, director Ortius.

Hubert Verbeek, managing partner Holland Venture adds to this: “While it provides a positive contribution towards a return to society, in the rehabilitation market chronic pain complaints are only treated limited. This provides great growth opportunities. The Ortius management is both very driven and experienced. She invests in making the treatment process as effective as possible. Ortius therefore fits perfectly in our investment focus in which healthcare costs are reduced and the quality of care improved.”
