Pediatric Therapeutic Services (PTS) Repeats with Ranking On Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for 2008
PTS, Inc. Ranks No. 4350 on the 2008 Inc. 5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 61.1%
Conshohocken, PA, USA, August 20, 2008 -- Inc. today ranked Pediatric Therapeutic Services (PTS), Inc. No. 4350 on its annual ranking of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the country. The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.
“Our second annual Inc. 5000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism,” said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth.”
“We are very excited to repeat with a ranking on the Inc. 5000,” said PTS Managing Partner Pam Hackett. “We could not achieve the three-year sales growth (of 61.1%) that enabled us to make this exclusive list without a dynamic corporate staff as well as a very dedicated team of therapists.”
The 5000 companies that made the list reported aggregate revenue of $185 billion and median three-year growth of 147 percent. Most important, the 2008 Inc. 5000 companies were engines of job growth, having created more than 826,033 jobs since those companies were founded. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and a list of the fastest-growing companies that can be sorted by industry and region can be found at www.inc5000.com.

The New York metro area tops the Inc. 5000 list with the most companies of any city with 355. Washington, D.C. comes in a close second with 300 companies on the list; Los Angeles comes in third with 244 companies, and Atlanta (194 companies) and Chicago (189 companies) round out the top five. Interestingly, only 62 companies on the Inc. 5000 are not based in metropolitan areas.

The most notable median growth categories among the Inc. 5000 fastest-growing businesses are in the Energy category (which grew by 298%), followed by Government Services (which grew by 220%), Security (200% growth), IT Services and Software (both grew by 187%), and Consulting (which grew by 182% on average).

PTS Performance At the Highest Level
Pediatric Therapeutic Services was ranked No.182 in Pennsylvania, and No. 186 in the Health Industry nationally.
“Our focus is on schools,” said PTS Managing Partner Diana Fongheiser. “Unlike many other pediatric therapy staffing organizations, that’s all we do. Most importantly, we serve special needs children. And that’s all the motivation we need to operate at a consistently high level. Our Inc. 5000 ranking is just a reflection of this prime motivation…to give the children we serve the best opportunitiy we can.”
The 2008 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2004 through 2007. To qualify, companies must be U.S.-based and privately held, independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2007, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2004, and $2 million in 2007.
