MedHub growth streak is not only continuing, but really starting to accelerate in 2012. The Ann Arbor-based medical software start-up continues to add staff because its client list keeps growing.

MedHub is working to move into a new headquarters in Dexter, rehabbing one of the village's historic buildings into modern office space. The new home is necessary because the company continues to add staff, which now stands at seven people. It has hired two new computer programmers in the last three months, including one that was a direct result from a Concentrate story. Orr expects to hire another 3-4 people this year.
"We expect growth to continue unabated," Orr says. "We have a couple of big jobs that we are close to landing. We could potentially double in size this year."
