Richard L. Jackson, chairman and CEO of Jackson Healthcare, developed more than 25 healthcare companies over the past 36 years, including staffing companies, surgery centers, practice management companies, clinics and hospi-tals. He demonstrated his industry acumen by lifting healthcare staffing firm World Health out of bankruptcy: It was losing $1 million on a monthly basis and Jackson made it profitable soon after acquiring it in 2006. Jackson Healthcare, the parent company he founded in 2000, is the third-largest healthcare staffing firm in the U.S. and 24th-largest U.S. staffing firm overall.
