CHARLOTTE, N.C., Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second straight year, national workplace health and wellness provider Healthstat, Inc. has earned a spot on a list of North Carolina's 40 fastest growing companies. Published annually by Business North Carolina magazine, the Mid-Market Fast 40 ranks companies based upon employee growth and revenue growth. Ranked #21, Healthstat moved up two notches from 2015 and is the only healthcare company to make the list the past two years.
Ben Kinney, editor of Business North Carolina, said, "These companies earned Fast 40 honors by hard work. They all excel in different industries, but share similar approaches including investing in employees, adapting to change and finding their own identities."
Healthstat provides workplace health and wellness services to 140 employers across the U.S., which includes managing and operating more than 300 onsite health centers for a combined employee and dependent population of more than 300,000 people. Workplace health and wellness is a fast-growing industry with a recent Gallup poll showing that 85 percent of large employers offer company wellness programs. Healthstat is one of the most respected and innovative providers in the nation and has developed a business model that produces outstanding results in employee health outcomes, corporate productivity and cost savings.
"Healthstat is more than a provider of health and wellness services," explains CEO Crockett Dale, "we are agents of change. We help create workplace cultures that nurture well-being so people will be motivated to live healthier lifestyles both on and off the job."
One of Healthstat's key differentiators is its ability to accurately identify and motivate patient behavior change. Its highly skilled clinical team, which spans coast to coast, is trained in the science and techniques of the Transtheoretical Model, one of the most respected behavior theories in the world developed by the founder of Pro-Change Behavior Systems. Healthstat is the only workplace health and wellness provider to have access to Pro-Change's employee engagement and behavioral change solution through its electronic medical record system.
The Mid-Market Fast 40 winners will be profiled in a supplement to the November 2016 edition of Business North Carolina. For more information on Business North Carolina, please visit www.businessnc.com. For more information on Healthstat, visit www.healthstatinc.com.
