20 Years Ago Today
On this date – unbelievably 20 years ago – MedSpeed opened its doors. That day we ran four routes for one very brave customer that took a chance on us.
A great deal has changed from that first day. There are now nearly 3,000 MedSpeeders on our exceptional team. Our operations span the country. And, thankfully, our routes almost never run several hours late as they did that first day!
A great deal, however, is very much the same as it was then and has been throughout our history. The central commonality has been our mission to deliver health by connecting patients, providers and their communities. In fact, today, amidst these challenging times, this mission feels more vibrant and more vital than ever.
This mission has lived and lives in the everyday commitment of our MedSpeed team members. To all those MedSpeeders, current and past, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. In both our daily work and in a book’s worth of incredible stories of efforts above and beyond, we have built a culture and a company of meaning.
Our customers have been with us – side by side – in this building process. First, and essentially, they have entrusted us to provide them with a vital service. But, far beyond that, they have contributed their ideas, good will and partnership to helping us progress and improve. For this too, I am overwhelmed with gratitude.
So, feeling quite humbled and reflective (and maybe a little old…), I am also incredibly energized by this milestone. I won’t go so far as to predict what the years ahead hold, but, with this group of amazing people as part of the greater MedSpeed team, I am excited to find out.
