Prior to the formation of Acacia Venture Partners in 1995, Acacia's principals backed numerous companies that emerged from nascent operations to become leaders in their respective sectors. These investments emphasized the dynamic healthcare services segment and included companies such as HealthSouth, Integrated Health Services, Caremark Rx (formerly MedPartners), and PhyCor. These companies received their initial venture capital funding when they were in the start-up or early expansion stage. They rapidly grew to dominate major healthcare services sectors, including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, outpatient surgery, post-acute care, physician practice management and pharmacy benefits management. Today, these companies generate combined annual revenues in excess of $10 billion.
