Gale Healthcare Solutions Announces Acquisitions, New Services to Meet Covid-19 Nursing Demands

February 23, 2021

TAMPA, Fla., March 1, 2021 — As the nation’s healthcare system continues to suffer from nursing shortages, today Gale Healthcare Solutions announced the completed acquisition of two regional healthcare staffing companies and the launch of new divisions that expand its technology-based marketplace and growing network of healthcare professionals. Gale now employs more than 25,000 clinicians in 34 states, with more than 100,000 clinicians registered nationally for per diem, contract, permanent placement, and travel assignments in acute and post-acute healthcare facilities. As one of the fastest growing firms in the nation’s $18 billion healthcare temporary services industry, Gale also launched an updated brand and website that better reflect its industry leadership and expanding operations.

“Since launching, Gale Healthcare Solutions has focused on solving the national nursing shortage,” said Tony Braswell, President and CEO. “Through our technology-based marketplace, pay innovations, and strategic expansion efforts, we’re helping healthcare facilities secure the clinical support they so urgently need to deliver quality care.”

The need for nursing professionals has never been greater:

    • • Citing BLS data, the American Nursing Association estimates 1.1 million nurses are needed to meet U.S. demand.
    • • A June 2020 study found that more than half of nursing homes have insufficient staffing levels, while an HHS study found the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened this challenge.
    • CDC data shows more than 1.3 million people live in the nation’s 15,600 nursing homes.

Gale Healthcare’s expansion includes:

    • • Travel and Acute Care Divisions. Based on success serving post-acute care facilities, Gale expanded its technology marketplace with an acute care division, offering service in Calif., Ill., Ky., N.Y., and Texas. Gale also launched a travel division to make its large clinical workforce available nationally.
    • • Regional Acquisitions. To further increase services, Gale acquired Scrubbs Healthcare in Louisville, Ky., and Zactly Healthcare in Colorado Springs and Denver.

To better serve nurses and healthcare facility managers, Gale launched a new website that includes job search capabilities, blog posts on healthcare topics, and other features for healthcare professionals.
