Nomad Health, a NYC-based online marketplace for healthcare jobs, raised $34 million in new equity and debt financing.
The round was led by Icon Ventures, with participation from Polaris Partners, RRE Ventures, .406 Ventures, and Silicon Valley Bank. In conjunction with the funding, Icon Ventures General Partner Tom Mawhinney has joined Nomad Health’s Board of Directors.
The company plans to use the new funding to double the size of its staff, expand its footprint and continue to enhance its technology platform.
Led by Alexi Nazem, M.D., Co-Founder and CEO, Nomad has built a technology platform for placing nurses and doctors into freelance jobs to address critical clinician shortages across the United States.
The platform now hosts jobs from over 4,000 healthcare facilities across the country, including positions at many of the top-rated hospitals in the country.
Nomad plans to grow from 50 to 90 employees by the end of 2019. It also has opened an office in Charlotte, North Carolina.
In addition to the new financing, Nomad announced that Bob Livonius has joined the company’s Strategic Advisory Board.
