TAMPA, Florida–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gale Healthcare, an on-demand staffing company working to end the nursing shortage, is recognized as Tampa Bay’s top health technology company.
Tampa Bay Inno has named Gale the “2022 Inno Blazer” for health technology. The awards honor impactful Tampa Bay companies that are reshaping the business ecosystem and igniting it with exponential growth.
“We are honored to be named Tampa Bay’s top health technology company, standing out in a competitive and impressive entrepreneurial scene,” said Tony Braswell, President and Founder of Gale. “Thanks to technology, we can connect health care providers with nurses who are available to work. And we can do it on a much larger scale, so more people can get the care they deserve.
More than one million nurses will be needed by 2030 to meet the growing demand for care nationwide. Gale’s on-demand platform helps fill open shifts, allowing nurses to work when and where they want. Health facilities share their staffing needs. Nurses search for job offers and claim the ones they want in real time. Along with on-demand technology, Gale was the first staffing platform to offer nurses same-day payment.
“Our nursing staff love the flexibility and same-day pay we offer, and that’s why Gale is growing so quickly,” Braswell added. “By giving clinicians more control over their jobs and salaries, we can help reduce stress and keep more of them in the profession they love.”
Gale now employs more than 55,000 clinicians and serves healthcare organizations in 40 states. In the past year, Gale closed a $60 million investment, added Google veteran Kan Kotecha as chief technology officer, doubled the size of its clinical workforce, and expanded its services to include traveling nurses and permanent placements. The company also licenses its software to other healthcare companies.
Gale made the Inc. 5,000 list of America’s fastest growing companies and was ranked in the top ten of America’s fastest growing staffing companies by staffing industry analysts.
