America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies on The Inc.500|5000

Healogics, Inc. Ranks on the 2013 Inc. 500|5000
with Three-Year Sales Growth of 260%
 
 
JACKSONVILLE, FLA (September 17, 2013) -- Inc. magazine recently ranked Healogics, Inc. on its seventh annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. Healogics, Inc.  joins LivingSocial, Edible Arrangements, CDW and Lifelock, among other prominent brands featured on this year’s list.
 
“It is an honor to be named to the Inc.5000 list for 2013. Chronic wounds affect millions of people each year yet only about 1/3 of the hospitals in the U.S. have a physician-led wound care center,” said Jeff Nelson, president and CEO of Healogics, Inc.  “Our growth represents improved access for patients to specialized care that could otherwise result in poor outcomes and increased cost to the health care system.”  Nelson goes on to say, “Healogics continues to look for innovative ways to reach and treat people with chronic wounds, everywhere we can, through the best means available.”
 
In a stagnant economic environment, median growth rate of 2013 Inc. 500|5000 companies is an impressive 142 percent. The companies on this year’s list report having created over 520,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees reached $241 billion. "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. Editor Eric Schurenberg.

Healogics and The Ohio State University Renew Partnership

 
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (September 3, 2013) – Healogics, Inc., the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services, has announced an agreement to continue its partnership with The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.  Since 2004, Healogics and OSU have been working together through clinical research and education, to directly impact the wound care industry.  Healogics brings a myriad of operational and clinical best practices to effectively and efficiently manage The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s Comprehensive Wound Center. 
 
Chronic wounds affect millions of people in the U.S. and the incidence is rising, fueled by an aging population and increasing rates of diseases and conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and the late effects of radiation therapy.  Untreated, chronic wounds can lead to diminished quality of life and possibly amputation of the affected limb. Healogics and OSU have made a commitment to raise awareness of the chronic wound epidemic to help more patients get the care they need.
 
“Effective academic-industry partnership is key to transforming health care. It is an extraordinary opportunity to transform clinical care, education and research nationwide,” said Chandan Sen, PhD, Professor of Surgery and Executive Director, Ohio State’s Comprehensive Wound Center.
 
“The combination of Healogics’ operational, clinical and financial expertise with OSU’s world-class research is a formula for success. We continue to look to OSU to help us advance the field of regenerative medicine, to translate healing from bench to bedside,” said Healogics president & CEO Jeff Nelson. 
 
In March 2014, Healogics and OSU will host the first annual Science and Industry Summit, an event that will bring together dynamic business leaders and cutting-edge scientists in the field of advanced wound care.  The Summit will be held in conjunction with the 7th Annual Translational to Clinical Regenerative Medicine Conference (
