Growth, revenues nets NFCH recognition

The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over a four-year period. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of the starting calendar year, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales, according to the internet.

The 2012 list is currently on the magazine’s website,

“There are approximately 5,200,000 registered businesses in America.  Each year over 676,000 new business are registered,” NFCH President/CEO Pat Schlenker said in an e-mail on Tuesday. 

“For the past 30 years the organization Inc. has recognized the top 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in America.” Schlenker said he received a letter from the Inc. Magazine’s editor-in-chief announcing that  Northwest Florida Community Hospital earned the position of 2,969 on the 2012 Inc 5000 list.

“To me that is almost an impossible achievement,” Schlenker said.

The entry on Northwest Florida Community Hospital shows that the hospital has posted a 3-Year growth of 74 percent and reported 2011 revenue of $62.4 million.

According to the magazine, the hospital had $35.9 million in 2008 revenue and has added 95 jobs in the previous three years.
