"We're proud to be ranked on Inc. 5000 and even more so of the team's
hard work and commitment that ultimately fuels our growth," said Baha
Zeidan, CEO of Azalea Health. "2017 was a great year of organic growth,
strategic acquisitions and partnerships that helped us expand and
enhance our offerings while staying focused on our mission to improve

an astounding three-year average growth of 538.2 percent, and a median
rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue was $206.1

"If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it's unparalleled recognition of
your years of hard work and sacrifice," says Inc. editor in chief James
Ledbetter. "The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay.
What doesn't change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the
forces that shape our lives."

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be
held October 17 to 19, 2018, at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country
Resort, in San Antonio, Texas. As always, speakers include some of the
greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
