TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Gale Healthcare Solutions today announced that Eric Dorsey, RN, has been named Chief Nursing Officer for the Long Term Care Division. In this role, Dorsey will be overseeing all clinical initiatives related to long term care services. Dorsey brings more than twelve years of experience in nursing, nursing education and management, and healthcare staffing.
“Eric’s nursing and staffing experiences have been key to managing our rapid growth,” said Tony Braswell, President and CEO of Gale Healthcare. “From directing staffing operations across several states to navigating the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Eric has a thorough understanding of the challenges that face our nursing staff and the healthcare facility clients we serve.”
Dorsey joined Gale Healthcare in March 2020, following acquisition of his Louisville healthcare staffing company, Scrubs Medical Staffing.

“I’m excited to focus again on the clinical issues that initially led me to the nursing profession,” said Dorsey. “My past experience as a Director of Nursing, and most recently as a director managing healthcare staffing services on a large scale, has provided invaluable insights for meeting the clinical needs of our long term care facility clients going forward.”
