San Diego, CA & Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) August 17, 2016
Inc. magazine today ranked American Specialty Health (ASH) as No. 4611 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This marks the seventh time in the last eight years that ASH has been included in the exclusive Inc. 5000 ranking. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn, Yelp and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
This year’s ranking reflects ASH’s 53 percent overall revenue growth from 2012 ($217 million) through 2015 ($333 million).
“We are very fortunate to have a highly talented and hard-working leadership team that continues to drive our innovative and results-oriented organization,” said ASH co-founder, Chairman and CEO George DeVries. “I believe that qualifying for the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies seven of the last eight years demonstrates the quality and strength of our organization. Our company is experiencing significant growth within our physical medicine provider network, fitness center network and population health programs. The marketplace demands effective solutions to help improve the health of its populations. We’re pleased to serve more than 140 health plans and 38 million members nationwide.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and featured in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.

"The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great—usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
