CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 21, 2018--First Stop Health was named by Inc. magazine to its 2018 Inc. 500 list of America’s fastest-growing private companies. First Stop Health is #276 on the list, with a three-year growth rate of over 1700%. Additionally, First Stop Health is ranked #23 in the Inc. 500 Health Category, and #15 in Illinois. Companies such as Morningstar, Yelp, Pandora, Timberland, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many other well-known entities gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500.

“Appearing on the Inc. 500 list in our first year of eligibility is testimony to the rapid growth and success First Stop Health has achieved through our commitment to high-utilization telemedicine that creates greater convenience for the patients we serve while also saving money for both employers and their employees,” said Patrick Spain, First Stop Health’s Co-Founder and CEO.

With a utilization rate 700% above the industry average, First Stop Health drives employees and their employers to realize the promise of telemedicine—greater convenience and high-quality care, all at a dramatically lower cost. “By doing so, First Stop Health is transforming our patients’ healthcare experience,” said Mark Friedman, Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer.

First Stop Health is the only telemedicine company that puts all its fees at risk through contractual performance guarantee for employers. In short, First Stop Health guarantees that if its service does not generate annual healthcare cost savings higher than the cost of its fees, it will refund the difference.
