Twin Cities-based startup Clinician Nexus has announced that it raised $1.5 million in a seed round of fundraising, bringing the company’s total investments to $2.3 million. The round was led by Chicago’s Hyde Park Venture Partners with additional contributions by the non-profit hospital Cedars-Sinai as well as Minneapolis-based firms Sofia Fund and Great North Labs. The company also participated in the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator program last summer.
“Great North Labs invests in teams that meet a critical need and engage deeply with customers,” Pradip Madan, managing partner at Great North Labs, said in a statement. “Clinician Nexus meets both criteria.”
Clinician Nexus provides schools and healthcare systems with a, “transparent, people-centered platform that facilitates clinical rotation from start to finish.” According to the company, its platform has been adopted by 100 hospitals and 150 schools across the country and has assisted in more than 10,000 student rotations. The company also recently partnered with PreCheck to add in a comprehensive background check to its service.
“We are thrilled with the interest Clinician Nexus is generating among investors and could not be more delighted with our investor partners,” Katrina Anderson, Clinician Nexus CEO, said in a statement. “We look forward to working with them to further build upon the success that Clinician Nexus has achieved.”
