Inc. magazine today ranked Health Affiliates Maine (based in Auburn, Maine) NO. 1049 on its 32nd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.

Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000. “As a state-wide behavioral health agency at Health Affiliates Maine, we truly invest in the people who work for us,” said executive director Andrea Krebs.  “We provide top quality continuing educational trainings, complete quality assurance and utilization review support, and financial security. This solid foundation allows our workers to focus on what they do best, serving our clients.  By being innovative in service delivery through our new tele-therapy program, and developing Medication Management services to begin this fall, we expect continued significant growth and expansion across the state.”

The 2013 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 20 to November 20 and on Inc.com), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. To make the cut, companies had to have achieved a staggering minimum of 918.59% in sales growth. The Inc. 500’ s aggregate revenue is $14.1 billion, with a median three-year growth of 1739 percent. The companies on this year’s Inc. 500 employ more than 52,100 people and generated over 44,912 jobs in the past three years. Complete results of the Inc. 500|5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/500. “Not all the companies in the Inc. 500 | 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.

Methodology

The 2013 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2009 to 2012. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2009. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2012. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2009 is $100,000; the minimum for 2012 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Companies on the Inc. 500 are featured in Inc.’s September issue. They represent the top tier of the Inc. 5000, which can be found at www.inc.com/500.
