Cumberland Named One of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the 11th Straight Year by Inc. Magazine

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 16, 2019) – Cumberland, a leading healthcare consulting and services firm, announced today it has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies for the 11th consecutive year. The firm is ranked 4,070 on the 2019 list.

The company has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies every year since 2009.

Media.

Cumberland has increased its revenue by 79 percent over the past three years and has continued to diversify its service offerings and expand its reach in the payer, provider and life sciences healthcare verticals by providing comprehensive consulting and managed services.

Inc. 5000 Methodology
Companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2015 to 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2018. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to three decimal places. There were 12 ties on this year’s Inc. 5000.
