Canyon Gate Medical Group Poised to Redefine Healthcare in Southern Nevada

Group Provides VIP Service Without Membership Costs and Accepts Most Major Insurance

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - October 9, 2008) - Canyon Gate Medical Group, a primary care physician group providing personalized and comprehensive care, has opened in Las Vegas.

Canyon Gate Medical Group is part of Outcome Based Delivery Systems (OBDS), the owner of a preeminent medical practice in South Florida. As demonstrated in that market, Canyon Gate will redefine patient care with the company's proven model of providing high-quality, high-touch, personalized healthcare.

"We believe Southern Nevada residents deserve to have a doctor who knows them and is there when they call," said Dr. Eric Moskow, MD, CEO of OBDS. "We are committed to providing our patients with the finest physicians in an un-hurried, personal atmosphere. Our high-touch patient care is perhaps old fashioned, but we have found that this approach results in significantly higher patient satisfaction, higher quality healthcare and lower overall medical costs."

The cornerstone of Canyon Gate's mission to provide high quality, cost-effective healthcare is based on more frequent and regular interaction between the patients and physicians, enabling discovery and treatment of health-related problems early. "The additional time spent on the front end through more frequent visits, which enable primary care physicians to focus on keeping people healthy, early detection and treatment; significantly reduces downstream costs to patients typically incurred in the emergency room, through specialists and hospital stays," added Bryan Dieter, Executive Vice President with OBDS.

Canyon Gate physicians limit the number of patients they see to ensure ongoing personalized healthcare and attention, including same-day appointments; minimal wait times; and serving the role of a personal medical director for ER visits, hospital stays and specialist care.

Canyon Gate has plans to have 12 offices around the Las Vegas area; its first two offices already are open across from Sunrise Hospital (3101 South Maryland Pkwy, Ste. 100A; 702-262-1130) and next to Southern Hills Hospital (9280 W. Sunset Road, Ste. 300; 702.262.0124). Opening soon, its third office will be located at 3960 West Craig Road in North Las Vegas. Initially, offices will be open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. with plans to later offer extended hours seven days a week, at most or all locations.
