NORTHVILLE, Mich., Feb. 14, 2018 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Medical Care Alert, a leading provider of medical alert systems to senior citizens nationwide, has been named to the University of Florida’s Gator100 list of fastest growing alumni companies for the second year in a row.
“Being named a Gator100 company two years in a row is a great honor,” said Bryan Stapp, President of Medical Care Alert. “With so many of our clients living in Florida, this award holds special significance for us.”
Medical Care Alert, the only Michigan-based company to receive the award, was ranked number 68 on the Gator100 list (up from number 88 in 2017) with a three-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 34.27 percent. Results were compiled and certified by Ernst & Young.
“The Gator100 honors UF alumni from across the university who are founding and growing amazing companies around the country,” said Kent Fuchs, president of the University of Florida. “It’s an incredible affirmation of the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of the Gator Nation.”
Stapp attributed the company’s growth to the popularity of its HOME & AWAY line of GPS-enabled mobile medical alert systems. He also noted the company’s focus on customer service with an A+ Better Business Bureau (BBB) rating, five consecutive years of Angie’s List Super Service Awards, and the Central Station Of The Year award given to Medical Care Alert’s monitoring center by industry group CSAA in 2016.
