TAMPA, FL (August 15, 2023)—Tampa-based Gale Healthcare, a leading technology-enabled platform that provides temporary workforce solutions for nursing homes and other long-term care providers, has made the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest Growing Companies for the second consecutive year. Gale, which provides a digital platform for connecting nursing professionals with healthcare providers, ranked in the top 17 percent of the annual Inc. 5000 list.
“Tampa Bay has a growing health-tech scene, and we’re proud to be part of it. Being recognized as an Inc. 5000 company is a win for Gale, for the region’s tech-based community, and for all those we serve,” said Tony Braswell, Gale Healthcare President and Founder. “The best way to build a successful business is to solve an important problem. At Gale, we do that every day. By combining exceptional tech talent, a deep understanding of the healthcare staffing industry, and a strong mission-driven team, we are helping healthcare providers across the country overcome the nursing shortage and ensure quality care.”
Less than one percent of U.S. businesses make the Inc. 5000 list. Gale, ranking at 831, introduced the first digital platform for temporary nurse staffing in 2016. The platform connects nursing staff with healthcare providers that have open shifts. Nurses are empowered to work when and where they want, as they can choose from open shifts in real-time. Additionally, Gale’s game-changing platform provides instant payment for nursing staff upon completion of their shifts, another first for the industry.
Over the past three years, Gale’s revenue grew more than 340%. Other notable achievements include:
- Opening a new corporate headquarters in Tampa.
- Growing its national clinical workforce to 65,000 nursing professionals to support healthcare providers across 40 states.
- Adding top technology talent to accelerate development of Gale’s industry-leading platform for healthcare staffing.
Gale’s Commitment to End the Nursing Shortage
In addition to using technology to help end the nation’s nursing shortage, Gale is giving back by supporting nursing education. Through the Gale Healthcare Foundation, the company has committed $500,000 for nursing school scholarships, with the goal of raising $1 million with partners to help license and train more nursing professionals.
A Mission-Driven Company Making Waves
