For its ongoing work to increase access and affordability in the healthcare industry, Goodroot has been named a 2022 Real Leaders Impact Award recipient.
The Real Leaders Impact Awards recognizes purpose-driven companies that are thriving as a result of their commitment to creating a better world for all of us. These companies, driven by a sense of humanitarian capitalism, have found a path where companies can do well, while doing good at the same time and create a new vision of what businesses can achieve when we align positive growth with social impact.
“Eliminating medical debt and creating a better healthcare system for all Americans drives everything we do at Goodroot,” says CEO Michael Waterbury. “We are thrilled to be recognized by Real Leaders alongside other successful, values-aligned companies.”
“Business leaders across the globe are rapidly discovering that to be competitive — and to grow and thrive — they must forgo shortsighted thinking in favor of a farsighted vision that takes into account their company’s social and environmental impact,” says Mark Van Ness, founder of Real Leaders.
Goodroot is community of companies reinventing healthcare one system at a time. “What makes me so incredibly proud of this award, is that it recognizes the social impact we are making together as a community of companies,” says Waterbury. “Each Goodroot affiliate company has contributed to our ability to create a new vision of what healthcare should look like. This award belongs to our whole team, across all affiliates.”
Goodroot ranks No. 51 on the 2022 list of the Top 200 Impact Companies alongside many healthcare heavyweights. The list features a mix of respected impact brands of all sizes and from a variety of industries, including Tesla, Etsy and Warby Parker. See the full 2022 Impact Awards ranking.
A virtual ceremony to honor the winners will be held Feb. 24 and will feature a keynote from Peter Diamandis, founder and executive chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation and executive founder of Singularity University.
