Founded in 2017 by Carolyn Witte and Felicity Yost, Tia is the modern medical home for women. We are trailblazing a new paradigm for women’s healthcare that treats women as whole people vs. parts or life stages. Blending in-person and virtual care services, Tia’s “Whole Woman, Whole Life” care model fuses gynecology, primary care, mental health and evidence-based wellness services to treat women comprehensively. By making women’s health higher quality and lower cost, Tia makes women healthier, providers happier, and the business of care delivery stronger — setting a new standard of care for women everywhere.
Tia has raised more than $132 Million in venture capital funding to date, including a $100 Million Series B investment, one of the largest early-stage rounds ever for a healthcare company focused on women. Since launching in 2017, Tia has grown to serve thousands of women aged 18-80 with blended in-person and virtual care in New York City, Los Angeles, Phoenix and San Francisco. In 2023, Tia announced its most recent joint venture partner, Cedars-Sinai. Tia and Cedars-Sinai plan to serve more than 100,000 women in the Los Angeles region, and aim to expand access to comprehensive women’s health care in a market with primary care/GYN provider shortages.
