EY Announces StationMD as an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 New Jersey Award Winner
Maplewood, N.J. – Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announced that Dr. Matt Kaufman, President and CEO of StationMD was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2021 New Jersey Award winner for his leadership of a telemedicine company that’s dedicated to delivering medical care to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) across the United States.
The Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards program is one of the preeminent competitive awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The award recognizes those who are unstoppable entrepreneurial leaders, excelling in talent management; degree of difficulty; financial performance; societal impact and building a values-based company; and originality, innovation and future plans.
“After working for years as an emergency room doctor, three fellow physicians and I knew we could offer better medical care to people with disabilities if we brought specialized doctors upstream to the patient. That’s what we’ve done with StationMD. In the last year alone, we’ve grown StationMD from serving around 1,300 individuals in three states to over 30,000 individuals in 12 states. This service is a literal lifeline for people with I/DD, their families and support staff,” said Dr. Kaufman.
For 35 years, EY US has honored entrepreneurs whose ambition, courage and ingenuity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries and made a positive impact on their communities. Dr. Kaufman will go on to become a lifetime member of the esteemed multi-industry community of award winners, with exclusive, ongoing access to the experience, insight and wisdom of fellow alumni and other ecosystem members in over 60 countries — all supported by vast EY resources.
As a New Jersey award winner, Dr. Kaufman is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2021 National Awards. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced in November at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.
