First Stop Health

August 22, 2023 (Chicago) – First Stop Health (FSH), a leading virtual care company, has been recognized on Inc. Magazine’s annual list of 5000 Fastest Growing Companies list. This achievement highlights FSH’s exceptional year-over-year growth and the virtual care company is honored to be recognized for its 6th consecutive year. 

Teira Gunlock, CEO of FSH, said “We have a disciplined approach to growth and it’s rewarding to see the team achieve such great results each year. With more growth comes the opportunity to do more for our patients, with the same steadfast commitment to them.” 

This growth is indicative of the strong employee benefit consultant and employer-client relationships we nurture. With an inherent dedication to providing the best healthcare experiences for our members, we address market demand and, in turn, bolster our growth each year,” said Chief Growth and Strategy Officer, Elena Gambon.  

Inc. listed FSH at number 2,606 for its 209% 3-year growth. FSH experienced an increase of 46% of annual recurring revenue (ARR) and 32% employer-client growth in 2022. The FSH team also grew by nearly 30% in the past year. The virtual care company plans to achieve similar success in 2023 due to its innovative Virtual Primary Care solution, ongoing enhancements to its other virtual care programs, and its new strategic partnership.  

FSH has been named on an Inc. list for 6 years in a row, including 2018 through 2022 as one of the fastest growing private companies on the Inc. 5000 list. FSH was named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces of 2022 and 2023. 

FSH is thrilled and honored to be recognized among the other remarkable organizations. Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies are ranked based on percentage revenue growth from 2019 to 2022.
