TAMPA, Fla — Gale Healthcare Solutions, (Gale) a startup launched in Tampa Bay to end the nursing shortage, is standing out as one of the fastest-growing staffing companies in America.
In this year’s Fastest-Growing US Staffing Firms list, Gale ranks in the top ten of all staffing firms nationwide. The report covers staffing companies in all business sectors, and is published by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA), a global advisor on staffing and workforce solutions.
“We are thrilled to see Gale, a company we started here in Tampa Bay, make a national impact,” said Tony Braswell, President and Founder of Gale Healthcare Solutions. “The nursing shortage is a critical problem, but Gale offers a solution and is revolutionizing the healthcare staffing industry. We are empowering nurses to stay in the profession, so no one goes without care.”
The Gale app allows nurses to work when and where they want. Healthcare facilities share their staffing needs. Nurses search for open jobs and claim the ones they want in real-time. It is the only platform that pays nurses the same day, minutes after they finish work.
“As the nursing shortage continues to put more stress on our healthcare system, it’s more important than ever that we find ways to meet the needs of nursing staff,” said Braswell. “We believe that giving caregivers the freedom to choose when and where they work and offering them pay quickly after they are done is a big part of the solution.”
To qualify for the 2022 Fastest-Growing US Staffing Firms list, companies must have posted a minimum of $1 million in US revenue in 2017 and have had a compound annual growth rate of at least 15% from 2017-2021. Companies in the top ten had a median compound annual growth rate of 120.9%. Gale ranked at number 10 out of 122 firms that qualified for the list, with $207 million in revenue in 2022 and a compound annual growth rate of 97.7%.
In the past year, the Gale platform doubled the size of its clinical workforce, while expanding services to include travel nurses and permanent placings, as well as licensing its software to other healthcare firms.
Gale now operates in 39 states with more than 53,000 W2 clinicians available for per diem staffing needs and a national network of more than 200,000 clinicians that can be tapped for contract and permanent placement positions.
In addition, Gale has nearly doubled its internal workforce. What began in 2016 as a small team in Tampa Bay managing about 300 nurses has grown to a team of more than 500 professionals managing technology, operations and business development for a national scale operation.
This fall, Gale will officially open its new headquarters: an innovative campus in Tampa located near St. Joseph’s Hospital.
