Businesses Defying Odds in Challenging Times

Rising Medical Solutions Honored on Crain's Fast Fifty List

Jun 11, 2010, 13:11 ET from Rising Medical Solutions, Inc.

CHICAGO, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- When we look back on the past five years in the business world, we see companies closing their doors, losing sales and downsizing. Rarely do we hear of companies revenues growing by nearly 300 percent. One privately-held healthcare company is defying those odds and doing some good for society along the way.


Rising Medical Solutions (Rising) makes the charts at number 20 on Crain's Fast Fifty list of fastest growing companies in the Chicago area. Crain's vetted Rising out from a couple hundred competing companies ranging from telecommunications to beauty to educational services to financial institutions to create its 2010 Fast Fifty list. Rising links its aggressive revenue growth to two simple variables: a strong, value-based culture and a drive to create ecstatic customers.

"Achieving a spot on Crain's prestigious list is a major pat on the back for our employees who work diligently, conscientiously and passionately to do better each day for America's healthcare system," says Jason Beans, founder and CEO of Rising. "Now, when someone asks a Rising employee where they work, our name will have greater weight and I'm happy our employees will get that kind of recognition."

Beans and four other successful Chicago entrepreneurs have been asked to speak at the Crain's Fast Fifty Breakfast, June 17, 7:30 – 10 am at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. All the companies selected have risen above the challenging times to create growth, influence the marketplace and change our national landscape in some way. The event gives business leaders and inspiring entrepreneurs an insider's recipe for success.
