Healthcare Companies of 2015

As the year of 2015 is wrapping up, Russell Stanley aka an analyst of the Mackie Research Capital says that due to a comprehensive and extensive report done dedicated to the top companies in healthcare of the fourth quarter of 2015, his top pick is Nobilis Health Corp. (NHC-TSX). On September 23rd of this year, the healthcare company announced that they organically acquired a whopping 60% stake and management control of the former Freedom Pain Hospital located in Scottsdale, Arizona for only approximately $3.2-million. Nobilis as a whole, owns and operates both surgical centers and hospitals in certain popular regions of the United States, with a reputation of very high and fast growth, all organic. Russell Stanley came out with a statement, “We view (Nobilis) as an undervalued play on increasing demand for surgical procedures flowing from an aging population and the prevalence of obesity.” According to the popular website fastcompany.com, Medivation is their number one choice as an innovative healthcare provider in 2015. The San Francisco-based company is speeding through FDA approvals at an increasing rate and is already at a net worth of $338 million in sales. CEO of the company, Lynn Seely discusses her company’s goal of finding a better way to treat men’s prostate cancer, explains, “Our Company is focused on taking down serious diseases, and wanted to take down the risk.” The second most innovative healthcare company to date in the last quarter of 2015 is Beijing Genomics Institute for resulting DNA sequencing as a mass-market. At the end of the day, the institute spends more time using cutting-edge genome-sequencing hardware and in turn training more analysists to make sense of the reams of output of data; more so than any other university in the world. BGI as a result has turned themselves into a major go-to destination for scientists to seek and collaborate- as well as exchange ideas with each other regarding ambitious projects regarding the DNA of plants, animals, and humans. Third on the list would be Partners Healthcare, by providing an answer when urgent medical attention calls. By the final quarter of 2015, Partners Healthcare has already invested a high billion dollars per year in the following fields: drug discovery, information technology, and genetics. Brigham, Women’, and Massachusetts General Hospitals are also all affiliated with Partners. They currently stand out for their work on translating genomic advances into the field of building the relationship between medicine and the peoples’ personalization with it.
