Hologic Acquires Acessa Health

Hologic Inc. has acquired Acessa Health Inc., a privately-held innovator in minimally invasive treatment for fibroids, for approximately $80 million in cash plus contingent payments based on future revenue growth.

“Acquiring Acessa Health strengthens our leadership position in the GYN surgical space and broadens our fibroid treatment portfolio with a highly complementary new product,” said Essex Mitchell, Hologic’s newly appointed Division President, GYN Surgical Solutions. “Together with the Acessa team, we can leverage our core women’s health expertise, commercial infrastructure and physician relationships to accelerate our growth strategy and offer superior technology that translates into better clinical outcomes for women.”

Acessa Health markets the Acessa ProVu system, a fully integrated laparoscopic system that combines radiofrequency ablation with advanced intra-abdominal ultrasound visualization and guidance mapping, enabling physicians to effectively and safely treat women with symptomatic, benign uterine fibroids. Clinical studies have shown that the Acessa ProVu system is a safe and minimally invasive alternative to hysterectomy and myomectomy. The system is indicated for treatment of benign uterine fibroids and is designed to detect more fibroids as compared to current imaging modalities. Radiofrequency treatment of fibroids is supported by clinical data demonstrating less blood loss and faster recovery times as compared to standard treatments currently available.1

“The Acessa Health team is exceedingly passionate about providing women with more options to address their symptomatic uterine fibroids,” said Kim Rodriguez, Acessa Health’s President, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder. “Now, under Hologic’s leadership and with their commercial presence, the Acessa ProVu system can more rapidly become the standard of care and greatly benefit more women.”
