This distinction, earned for the second year in a row, is based on three-year revenue growth of more than 340%. Other notable achievements over the past year include:
- Opening new corporate headquarters in Tampa.

"It is an honor to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in Tampa Bay,” said Tony Braswell, Gale President and Founder. “Launching a digital platform to support the healthcare sector has been transformational for our company and our industry. It’s really gratifying to see the incredible difference we’re making in the lives of so many people, and to be part of this region’s thriving technology sector.”
Gale Healthcare revolutionized the healthcare staffing industry with its groundbreaking tech-based platform, which disrupts the traditional staffing agency model. 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.
