PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release
August 17, 2021
Lenexa, Kan. — Inc. Magazine revealed that local travel nursing firm Ethos Medical Staffing is ranked No. 2,418 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment: 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.
Founded by nurses in 2015, Ethos works to improve communities by changing how health care is delivered and empowering medical professionals in their pursuit of adventure, opportunity and service. Ethos serves as an advocate for its medical professionals, treating them like a priority while they care for others.
“Being ranked in the top half of the Inc. 5000 means so much to all of us. It truly shows everyone internally is on the same page and focused on our mission, vision and values: focus, teamwork, commitment, honesty, transparency and having fun while doing it,” said Ethos Founder & CEO Jeff Stoner. “Our mission is to staff top-tier talent to communities in need across the U.S., and with COVID 2.0, our clients are leaning on us to answer the call. Being part of this prestigious award program only shows how dedicated we are to that mission, and I couldn’t be more proud of our team.”
Not only have the companies listed to the 2021 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but this year’s honorees also proved resilient and flexible given 2020’s unprecedented challenges. Among the 5,000 companies ranked, the median three-year growth rate soared to 543%, and median revenue reached $11.1 million. Together, those companies added more than 610,000 jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region and other criteria, can be found at inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc., which will be available on newsstands on Aug. 20.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc., in a release. “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.”
