For the 5th Time, Medical
Guardian Appears on the Inc. 5000 list, Ranking No. 3448 with Three-Year
Sales Growth of 91%

NEW YORK & PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Inc. magazine ranked Medical Guardian NO. 3448 on its 36th annual
Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing
private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most
successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—
its independent small and midsized businesses. Companies such as
Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp,
Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national
exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“The Medical Guardian team is thrilled to be recognized on the Inc. 5000
list once again,” said Geoff Gross, founder and CEO of Medical Guardian.
“Empowering seniors with the technology they need to age in place
comfortably and confidently motivates our entire team to continue
growing as the leading personal emergency response systems (PERS)
provider in the market. To be featured on the list consistently, year
after year, speaks to our commitment – it’s an achievement we are very
proud of.”

The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500
companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on
newsstands August 16) is the most competitive crop in the list’s
history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling
three-year average growth of 481%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is
$206 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated
619,500 jobs over the past three years. Complete results of the Inc.
5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be
sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at

“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American
Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric
Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think
determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success,
and I believe them.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will
be held from October 10 through 12, 2017 at the JW Marriott Desert
Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, CA. Speakers include some of the
greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as former Ford
president Alan Mullaly, FUBU CEO and founder and “Shark Tank” star
Daymond John, Dollar Shave Club founder Michael Dubin, researcher and #1
New York Times bestseller Brené Brown, and Gravity Payments’ founder and
CEO Dan Price.
