You can read an article about Incredible Health on Webwire. Here’s an excerpt:
“Incredible Health is on a mission to help health care professionals find and do their best work. This capital raise will accelerate the national expansion of their career marketplace connecting nurses to permanent, well-paid hospital jobs.
“By 2024, the United States is poised to experience its biggest employment crisis to date — a shortage of one million nurses. This dearth puts hospitals at risk of financial loss: travel nurse contractors and overtime cost hospitals 1.5-2x more than permanent workers. Most importantly, it impacts the quality of care and threatens patient safety.
“That’s where Incredible Health comes in. Already trusted by more than 150 hospitals throughout California including Stanford Health Care, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and CommonSpirit Health, the company’s first-of-its-kind career marketplace uses proprietary algorithm-based tech to match the needs of hospitals with the right nurses for permanent jobs. The company’s founders understand the challenge well. CEO Iman Abuzeid is an MD and Wharton alum, and CTO Rome Portlock is an MIT alum from a family of nurses.”
