North Charleston, SC, August 14, 2019 – For the fourth consecutive year, Charleston-based Equiscript, LLC has earned a spot on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. The magazine published its annual rankings today, with Equiscript ranked as number 1765. The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
Celebrating its 10th year in business, Equiscript specializes in helping community health centers and safety-net hospitals improve medication adherence rates and outcomes by providing high levels of personalized support for high-risk, high-need patients.
“To paraphrase a quote I’ve heard many times, ‘It took 10 years of hard work to achieve this level of overnight success,’” said Equiscript CEO, Mike Burkhold. “We are a cause-based company, and I think our employees work all the harder because they believe in our mission and they are committed to patient care. This and every award is a team effort. We work hard for our cause, and I have my Equiscript team to thank for that.”
