Sacramento Business Journal

The Sacramento-based traveling nurse recruiter Valley Healthcare Staffing raised $3.3 million from the Central Valley Fund, the Davis-based private equity lender reported Tuesday.

Valley Healthcare was started in 2002 to recruit nurses and physicians to work in California. The company in recent years has concentrated primarily on nurses.

The company has seen revenue grow by 35 percent in the most recent year and is on track to grow another 30 percent in 2016, said Jose Blanco, managing partner of Central Valley Fund. “There is a huge shortage of nurses in California, and it is getting worse,” Blanco said.
