SS&G Healthcare receives First Merit Legacy Award

AKRON, Ohio – SS&G Healthcare was honored with the prestigious First Merit Legacy Award last week at the 19th annual Cascade Capital Corp. Business Growth Awards program.
The First Merit Legacy Award is presented to a business organization that has demonstrated the greatest economic impact within its region and has previously won a minimum of four Business Growth Awards. SS&G Healthcare has held a consistent place on the honor roll for the Business Growth Awards, having been selected as an honoree seven times.
“Our growth better positions SS&G Healthcare to share our expertise and aid in the success of our clients,” said Thomas Ferkovic, managing director of SS&G Healthcare. “We are honored to receive this prestigious award and be named among so many other area businesses that are helping the Akron region thrive.”
The Business Growth Awards recognize and honor businesses from a seven-county region that have achieved superior growth in sales and/or employment over the past five years. SS&G Healthcare has grown from 97 employees in 2008, to 112 employees in 2012, with a 62 percent growth in sales during that same time period.
