SAN DIEGO, Oct. 7, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In its seventh annual ranking, the San Diego Business Journal recently named health and wellness organization American Specialty Health Incorporated (ASH) among the 100 fastest-growing private companies in San Diego County, highlighting ASH's organic growth and increase in revenue each year that it has been in business over the past two decades.

"It's always an honor to be recognized by the San Diego Business Journal, and it's especially rewarding to be named to the list," said George DeVries, CEO and chairman of ASH. "Not only does it provide us with the opportunity to reflect on our successes and our ability to evolve with the changing health and wellness landscape, but it also motivates us to continue to be flexible, efficient, and forward-thinking."

Inclusion in the publication's "100 Fastest Growing Privately Held Companies in San Diego" is a coveted local honor. To be considered, a business must be based in San Diego County, as well as privately held and independent -- it cannot be a division or subsidiary of another company, public or private. In addition, each qualifying company must have generated revenues of at least $200,000 in 2007, which is the starting point for the list's calculations. From there, researchers verify the financial information supplied by each company, reviewing the financial details of each company's business operations in 2007, 2008, and 2009.

In August, ASH was named to the Inc. Magazine "Inc. 5000" list of the fastest-growing companies in America for the second consecutive year.

ASH provides wellness and prevention, specialty network management, and fitness and exercise services to health plans, insurance carriers, employer groups, and trust funds nationwide. ASH subsidiaries operate in all 50 states, providing a seamless national provider network and administrative platform for clients.
