The MedSpeed Story:
Moving Healthcare Forward

In 1999 our co-founder, Jake Crampton, entered the concept for MedSpeed into the University of Chicago's New Venture Challenge. He saw a void in healthcare - the absence of industry focused transportation. The solution was a specialist that could improve quality, decrease costs and create a strategic advantage for its customers. The judges agreed and the concept took home the top prize. Shortly thereafter, MedSpeed was born.

Through the years, MedSpeed has broadened its clinical laboratory focus to include comprehensive solutions for health systems and blood banks. It has also discovered better ways to execute transportation with efficiency and developed technology to meet the demands unique to this industry. What began as a modest operation in the Chicago suburbs has grown into an industry leading organization with locations across the country. Today, with proven capabilities and a successful partnership model, MedSpeed is realizing its broader goal of transforming medical transportation nationwide.
