I am humbled and appreciate the somewhat unique relationship the operations team and I have with all of our portfolio companies. It affords us a holistic view of the portfolio’s impact on healthcare and the amazing work each company is contributing to make the system work better for everyone. It is our pleasure to provide any help to our companies and we’re thankful to have a role, no matter how small, in changing healthcare.
