Gento (formerly Nursing Without Walls) a startup that provides on-demand staffing and care delivery management to home health agencies and skilled nursing facilities through their platform and mobile app, announces today a $5M Series A funding by Jeff Anderson at Palisades Growth Capital. Gento has raised over $7 million to date and will use the funds to expand nationwide and to improve care-delivery through their technology.
“Gento means ‘family’ in Esperanto,” said J. Matthew Nespoli, vice president of operations and a physical therapist with over 20 years of industry experience. “A language that was designed to be easy and flexible in order to foster connection and universal understanding. Gento aspires to be just that for our users and patients, to include nurses, therapists, and aides.”
With expansion already underway in multiple states across the country, Gento is poised to be the breakthrough leader in this industry.
“Gento has been consistently growing,” said Palisades Growth Capital’s Jeff Anderson. “I attribute this success to their user-friendly technology platform, meticulous attention to operations, and passion for their customer’s success. In a vastly changing regulatory landscape, Gento is providing highly cost-effective solutions to the growing in-home healthcare market.”
“Recent payment reforms require that home health agencies and skilled nursing facilities operate with the highest level of efficiency,” said co-founder and CEO Victor Gajendran. “Gento’s tech-empowered staffing and care delivery management solution is a win-win for the home health agencies, skilled nursing facilities, clinicians and especially the patients.”
