June 26, 2009 – ApolloMD Incorporated, a leader in the field of clinical outsourcing, announced today that Christopher Durham, Esq., ApolloMD President and Founder and Christopher Krubert, MD, Chief Executive Officer of ApolloMD, were awarded the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year(R) 2009 Award in the Health Sciences category in the Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee regions.
According to Ernst & Young, the award, which celebrates its 23rd anniversary this year, was created to honor leaders and visionaries who create, build, and grow market-leading, dynamic businesses. Durham and Krubert were selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a gala event at the InterContinental Hotel Buckhead in Atlanta on June 25, 2009.
“I am honored to receive the Entrepreneur of the Year award along with Dr. Krubert and to share this honor with ApolloMD’s corporate team, physicians, and midlevel providers,” said Christopher Durham. “The group has certainly come a long way from a single Emergency Medicine contract in Cobb County over a decade ago; each team member has had a hand in our journey to becoming the fourth largest, and fastest growing company in the industry.”
Dr. Christopher Krubert remarked, “ApolloMD’s growth and success are attributed to a highly efficient and cost effective operating model. Due to our lean structure, we are poised to be at the forefront of controlling healthcare costs. In these difficult times for Americans, ApolloMD, thanks to our dedicated team of physicians and our outstanding hospital partners, remains committed to providing top quality care at a reasonable cost.”
