Medical Direct Club (MDC), a provider of mail-order urological supplies,
has been named to Inc. Magazine's 5000 List of Fastest Growing Private
Companies in the nation.
Medical Direct Club is ranked No. 461 out of 5,000 U.S.-based, privately
held for profit businesses reviewed by Inc. Magazine for its annual list
of the nation's fastest growing companies. Since its founding in 2009,
Medical Direct Club has sold more than 20 million catheters, achieved a
1,000 percent three-year growth rate, and grown from four to 50
Among the fastest growing companies, MDC ranks No. 9 in Tennessee and
No. 36 in the health care industry, according to Inc. Magazine.
Medical Direct Club is the third largest supplier of urology products in
the United States, according to published billings by the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services.
"We are thrilled to see our success recognized by Inc. Magazine as one
of the fastest growing companies in the country," said founder and CEO
Bradford Gulmi. "Our strategy has been to drive growth of the disposable
catheter market by excelling at customer service and satisfaction. We
are continuing to achieve dramatic growth because of our ability to
execute a plan that is based on being the most reliable source for
patients and physicians."
Before 2008, Medicare coverage limits resulted in many patients washing
and re-using catheters. Since then, Medicare has expanded coverage so
that patients can receive up to 200 catheters per month.
Medical Direct Club provides direct-to-consumer delivery of urological
products, primarily catheters. Providing patients with sterile,
disposable catheters and assisting physician-prescribed care can
eliminate urinary tract, bladder, kidney and uterus infection that
produces painful health complications, including hospitalization and in
some cases death.
"Changing patient behavior is critical to not only lower health care
costs associated with re-using catheters but also to improve health and
quality of life," said Gulmi. "Our marketing reaches a critical
forgotten population that is outside the umbrella of Medicare's
traditional educational reach."
In addition to mailing catheters free of shipping charges, MDC creates
individualized service programs for members and their physicians to
ensure quality and satisfaction.
