JACKSONVILLE, Fla., August 17, 2021 – Inc. magazine today revealed that Wellbox is No. 689 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
This is the second year in a row that Wellbox is ranked on the list, which represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“While COVID-19 has certainly reaffirmed the value of virtual care, we have been committed to bringing care to people’s homes since the beginning. For the last six years, we’ve worked with providers across the country to provide better virtual care to some of our country’s most vulnerable patients,” said Wellbox COO, Patrick Stevenson. “Our recognition on the Inc. 5000 list certainly proves the longevity of virtual care services, and reflects the importance of helping patients live longer healthier lives.”
Not only have the companies on the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s list also proved especially resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000, the average median three-year growth rate soared to 543 percent, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.

“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
