About Float

Float Health is building the marketplace for specialty pharmacy. Our mission is to make healthcare safer, easier, and more efficient by moving all care that doesn’t need a hospital to the home.

Float connects nurses with patients so they can get treatments for their chronic conditions in the home rather than going into the overcrowded hospital. The model is unique in that all stakeholders benefit - patients get more convenient care, nurses get access to flexible work for better pay on their days off, pharmacies fill more prescriptions, impacted hospitals reduce admission for loss-leading low reimbursement patients, and payors enjoy 12x reduced costs when care is delivered at home.

Our patients are largely chronic, requiring regular treatments to sustain their quality of life. Nurses are burnt out with hectic hospital shifts and love that our platform allows them the flexibility and autonomy to create their own schedules. Providers want reliability, quality, and minimal effort to find nurses for their prescriptions.

Float is a Y Combinator W22 alum, fast-growing startup. We are distributed across the world and remote-first. We care deeply about communication, empathy, curiosity, autonomy, and velocity of execution. We just closed our Series A in 2023, making it the perfect time to come onboard to change the way healthcare is delivered.
