Convalo Health International Announces the Expansion of the Los Angeles Area Pod With an Additional Detox and Residential Facility; Increasing Capacity to Fulfill Demand

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - May 11, 2016) -


Convalo Health International, Corp. (Convalo) (TSX VENTURE:CXV), a company in the addiction recovery industry in the US, announced it has secured an additional residential detox facility in Corona, California, in the greater Los Angeles area.

The facility will increase Convalo's existing detox and residential capacity and is expected to be fully licensed within 120 days. The increase in capacity will allow Convalo to service unmet demand for residential and detox treatment services in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas.

Convalo is currently securing state licensing and improving the property to reflect the BLVD brand. The investment in this facility, which costs about $500k in capital expenditures and expenses, is expected to contribute an additional $3 million to $4 million in annual revenue for the Los Angeles pod beginning in the third fiscal quarter.(1)

"This facility increases our detox and residential treatment capacity in the Los Angeles area," said Stampp Corbin, CEO of Convalo. "This takes advantage of the unmet demand in the LA market and expands our capacity to offer our highest priced services to patients."
