Private equity firm Webster Capital acquired travel nurse staffing firm Emerald Health Services. The Los Angeles-based healthcare staffing provider was founded in 2002 by Mark Stagen, who is also a founder and former president of the National Association of Travel Healthcare Organizations.
“For over 15 years, Emerald has been a true love of mine,” Stagen said. “Though I will miss the team, the clients and the business, I’m very excited to see the amazing things Emerald will accomplish with Webster Capital and the amazing Emerald management team.”
Emerald ranked No. 33 on Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2017 list of largest healthcare staffing firms.
