Two companies get a shout out from Fortune Magazine

Two Manchester healthcare companies got some national attention last week for their rapid growth.

Fortune magazine named Richmond-based River City Comprehensive Counseling Services and The Pediatric Connection to its Inner City 100, a list that ranks the fastest-growing businesses in America’s inner cities.

River City Comprehensive Counseling Services was number 13 on the list thanks to its 530 percent revenue growth over the last five years. The Pediatric Connection was number 97 with a 56.8 percent five-year growth rate.

The rankings are based on revenue growth from 2009 to 2013. The numbers were compiled by the Massachusetts-based nonprofit Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC). ICIC defines inner cities as “core urban areas with higher unemployment and poverty rates and lower median incomes than their surrounding metropolitan statistical areas.”
