The big companies at the top of the Crain’s Health Care Companies list look much different than the tiny ones at the bottom.

For instance, though the full Excel list includes 95 companies, it includes only one pharmacy, Discount Drug Mart, which appears in the No. 1 spot with 2,521 full-time equivalent Northeast Ohio employees.

Likewise, the No. 2 company, Medical Mutual of Ohio, with 2,342 full-time equivalent local employees, is the only company on the list in the “insurance underwriters” category.

The rest of the top 25 is dominated by senior living companies, big physician groups, medical product makers and home health care providers.

But go beyond the top 25, and the industry makeup changes substantially. For instance, among the 95 companies are 40 with fewer than 10 employees. That group includes 15 businesses in the “fitness and wellness” category — a category that shows up just once in the top 50.

Combined, the 95 companies on the full list have 17,068 full-time equivalent employees as of June 30, and 92% of those employees work for companies in the top 25.

Combined employment increased by just 0.4% over the prior 12 months, judging by data for the 81 companies that submitted figures for both years.

The list includes Northeast Ohio-based companies that primarily focus on providing health care-related products and services, excluding hospitals. It’s built from the Crain’s Health Care Directory, which includes the companies on this list and other organizations that don’t qualify for the list, such as nonprofits and local branches of companies headquartered elsewhere. The directory is currently available in Excel format and will be printed in our annual Book of Lists at the end of 2021.

Neither the list nor the directory are comprehensive. Here is the submission form for both. And to get the digital version of the list or the directory, visit the Crain’s Data Center: CrainsCleveland/data.
