NurseGrid, a Portland, Ore.-based healthcare scheduling and staffing technology platform provider, closed a $5.7m funding round.
The round was led by Hatteras Venture Partners with participation from existing investors Excelerate Health Ventures, Toba Capital, HealthBox, and the Portland Seed Fund.
Led by Joe Novello, CEO, NurseGrid creates simplified schedule management tools for healthcare facilities. The company provides tools that allow healthcare departments to manage schedules, fill open shifts, increase staff satisfaction, and boost retention — all from a single platform.
The company intends to use the funds to grow the team, expand the product line, and improve existing tools. Current plans call for expanding features, such as managing float staff across departments and enabling staff to schedule themselves using smartphones. NurseGrid will also build out the mobile Jobs Board, allowing nurses to apply for and seek out new jobs within its app.
