Funding will help the company accelerate growth in new and existing markets and bring enhanced functionality to the FleetNurse technology platform
SAN DIEGO , May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — HCAP Partners, a California-based private equity firm and nationally recognized impact investor, today announced its investment in FleetNurse, a leading provider of innovative on-demand healthcare staffing solutions. In addition, the firm announced that Nicolas Lopez, Principal at HCAP, will join FleetNurse’s board of directors. Terms of the investment were not disclosed.
FleetNurse’s software platform connects healthcare professionals directly to healthcare facilities that need to staff shifts on short notice. Healthcare administrators can use FleetNurse’s service as a key workflow automation component to broadcast available shifts to a large pool of credentialed healthcare workers, allowing facilities to fill shifts within an hour’s notice. For healthcare workers, FleetNurse’s user-friendly mobile technology enables greater control over their schedules.
The growing imbalance between supply and demand for nurse labor has fueled the company’s rapid growth, resulting in its revenues increasing more than threefold in 2021. HCAP Partners’ investment will support the company’s team buildout and fund further enhancements to the company’s technology offerings.
"FleetNurse has become a trusted partner for on-demand nurse staffing solutions," commented Nicolas Lopez, Principal at HCAP Partners. "Using the same technology that disrupted and optimized ride sharing, vacation rentals, and many other segments of the modern economy, the company has created a powerful software solution to efficiently match high-quality nurses to facilities in both the acute and post-acute markets."
"FleetNurse is leveraging industry-leading technology to meet healthcare’s complex staffing needs while also empowering nurses with greater flexibility and control over their schedules," stated Israel Angeles, FleetNurse CEO. "With HCAP Partners’ funding and support, we will accelerate that growth to become the top tech platform for workforce management for healthcare facilities and a powerful tool for healthcare workers that supports a more sustainable work-life balance."
