"Investment activity in Midwest healthcare deals continues its upward trend, outperforming previous years' activity for 3 years in a row.
As with the rest of the country, Midwest healthcare investing fell dramatically in 2009 after strong years in 2007 and 2008, but it appears investors are again optimistic about Midwest deals. 2013 should be an interesting year to watch," said Aram Nerpouni, Interim President of BioEnterprise, the Cleveland biomedical accelerator.

By sector, the 2012 equity funding was allocated as follows:

  • Medical device companies:  $309 million (32%)
  • Healthcare IT and service companies: $177 million (18%)
  • Biopharmaceutical companies: $487 million (50%)
  • "The Midwest typically sees more medical device companies than either healthcare IT or biopharmaceutical; however, biotech saw the largest influx of dollars in 2012 as investors continue to focus on  later stage biotech opportunities," said Nerpouni.  "Investment activity in Midwest healthcare IT remains robust as investors are drawn by payers and providers searching for applications to improve patient outcomes and efficiencies."
