The Startup Weekly, an online publisher of news, insights, and awards for business builders, has named 9 companies to its “2021 Healthcare Companies to Watch” list. Inclusion in the final awards list was based on several factors, including 2020 business achievements, demonstrated business resiliency, contributions to thought leadership, product and/or service strength, and contributions to the business community at large. Two sleep companies made the list: 3B Medical and Blackstone Medical Services.

Justin Smith, CEO of 3B Medical, says in a release, “3B Medical is honored to receive this award from The Startup Weekly. Winning this award is a testament to the 3B Team’s passion for distributing, developing, and manufacturing high-quality, innovative products that respiratory patients and consumers appreciate in an unprecedented time of need and that promote overall health and wellness via 3B’s disinfection, sterilization, and sanitization products, which are weapons in the fight against COVID-19. We are grateful for our customers’ support and enthusiasm for our high-quality products in each of our three product lines: sleep, oxygen, and disinfection. We are committed to expanding into new markets with our products and bringing new products in our pipeline to market that meet the needs of consumers, with a focus on quality, comfort, and safety.”

Blackstone Medical Services is a home sleep testing services provider. Its mission is: “We are dedicated to providing a safe, effective, simple, high-quality and cost-effective method for providers and patients to carry out a home sleep test to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea, utilizing up to date technology and testing methods.”
