Progyny Ranks #28 on the 2018 Inc. 5000

The 37th annual list curates America’s fastest-growing private companies

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Progyny, the leading fertility benefits management company, today announced that it was named #28 on Inc. Magazine’s 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in America,” said David Schlanger, CEO of Progyny. “Our rapid growth is a testament to how quickly we have been able to create a best-in-class solution to fill the vast gap in infertility coverage. America’s leading companies are partnering with Progyny to bring our robust fertility and family building benefit to their employees because we deliver a superior member experience, better clinical outcomes, and more efficient use of their healthcare dollars.”

The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved 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 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“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.”

Progyny partners with leading employers to help their employees seeking to have a child successfully achieve that dream. Progyny’s solution includes comprehensive coverage for treatments such as IVF and egg freezing, support for surrogacy and adoption, an integrated pharmacy program and unlimited education, guidance and emotional support through Patient Care Advocates (dedicated fertility experts). Progyny’s fertility benefit is the only one in the industry designed to be fully accessible to all employees, regardless of their sexuality or gender. Progyny’s program delivers superior clinical outcomes, including pregnancy success rates, miscarriage rates and twinning rates that are far better than the national averages. By significantly reducing the rate of twin and triplet births, Progyny is helping to decrease the $26B of medical costs spent annually on preterm birth in the U.S.
