Vivian Health Inc, a healthcare jobs marketplace, has secured $60 million in funding. Thoma Bravo was the lead backer with participation from IAC and Collaborative Fund.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Vivian Health, an IAC (NASDAQ: IAC) company and a leading healthcare jobs marketplace serving healthcare professionals first, today announced a $60 million primary and secondary equity investment led by Thoma Bravo, a leading software investment firm, with participation from IAC and Collaborative Fund. The new capital will be used to accelerate Vivian’s rapid growth and further its scale among healthcare clinicians and employers, as well as to support future M&A initiatives.
As the first jobs marketplace built for healthcare professionals, Vivian offers employers a fast and effective way to fill a variety of healthcare jobs, including permanent roles, per-diem shifts, local contracts, and travel positions. Vivian has seen significant adoption among healthcare professionals, with over 700,000 registered clinicians using the job marketplace. Much of this growth has come through organic channels and word-of-mouth.
The U.S. healthcare industry is on track to be more than three million workers short by 2026, which is why over 145 healthcare employers, including staffing agencies and health systems, are partnering with Vivian to fill their open healthcare jobs up to 50% faster than with other solutions, reducing costs by up to 80%.
“Vivian is the healthcare industry’s first ever candidate-centric jobs platform built with clinicians’ needs in mind—offering the widest selection of job opportunities and features like Vivian’s Universal Profile, transparency across pay and benefits, employer reviews, and a one-click apply experience—and as a result we’re able to drive organic engagement with clinicians at an unrivaled scale,” said Vivian Health co-founder and CEO Parth Bhakta. “This has been key to our growth and our ability to help employers fill open positions quickly and cost effectively.”
Continued Mr. Bhakta, “We’re excited to add Thoma Bravo as a shareholder and to benefit from the team’s world-class software expertise as we expand our solution and continue to scale. We’re also thrilled to work with mission-aligned investors through Collaborative Fund, and we’ll continue to benefit from the unparalleled track record and operational expertise that comes with being part of IAC.”
Since being acquired by IAC in 2019, Vivian has grown revenue by more than 45x and has facilitated more than 3 million job applications to date. Vivian and IAC’s temporary labor platform Bluecrew, which has filled one million job shifts, have both accelerated growth year over year.
“Temporary labor and shiftwork in the U.S. is still mostly a manual process, ripe for disruption, and IAC is investing in the bold ideas and ambitious leaders ready to transform how Americans find quality, sustainable work,” said Mark Stein, EVP and Chief Strategy Officer, IAC. “Parth and his team at Vivian are building a next generation jobs platform that clinicians love, and healthcare employers depend on to fill open positions—this is Vivian’s moment.”
“Vivian’s solution has seen incredible organic growth and traction with both clinicians and employers in a short time, which speaks to the value of its data-driven approach as a differentiator in this market,” said Christine Kang, a Principal at Thoma Bravo, who will join the Vivian Health board of directors. “Vivian is redefining the way healthcare professionals find work at a critical juncture for America’s healthcare system, and we’re thrilled to partner with Parth and his team to help accelerate this next phase of growth.”
“Hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals across the country have come to trust Vivian as the place to build their networks and advance their careers,” said Craig Shapiro, founder of Collaborative Fund. “As more and more workers rely on them, they’re poised to help the healthcare industry itself by making hiring quicker, more cost-effective, and ultimately by closing systemic labor shortages.”
