TORONTO, ON, March 4, 2021 — CorVista Health, Inc., a digital health company dedicated to improving cardiovascular disease diagnosis, today announced it has closed a $65 million Series C equity financing. This latest financing round brings the total cash raised to nearly $100 million.

Ambix Life Science Fund I, L.P. led the financing, joined by MedVenture Partners, Inc. as well as several new and previous investors. With the investment proceeds, CorVista Health will accelerate product development for the CorVista System and scale its infrastructure ahead of commercialization. Additionally, ongoing clinical research is being accelerated for the CorVista System to assess for coronary artery disease as well as elevated left ventricular end diastolic pressure and elevated mean pulmonary artery pressure, hallmarks of heart failure and pulmonary hypertension, respectively.
“We believe the CorVista System has the potential to reduce the burden on both patients and the healthcare system,” said Peter Townshend, Managing Member of Ambix Venture Management, LLC. “CorVista Health has the potential to advance the way heart disease is diagnosed and managed.
