RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwire - August 9, 2007) - The board of directors of Agility Healthcare Solutions, Inc. elected Christopher M. Carney as chairman, effective May 18, 2007.

Mr. Carney retired from Bon Secours Health System Inc. (BSHSI) in 2005 after serving for more than eight years as president and chief executive officer. He held a variety of leadership positions with the not-for-profit Catholic health system for more than 24 years prior.

Mr. Carney grew BSHSI's total net revenues from $761.3 million to $2.5 billion during his tenure.

His accomplishments include the establishment of the Bon Secours Mission Fund that distributes $7.7 million to more than 44 community health initiatives and programs.

"Agility is providing truly innovative solutions to overcome many critical challenges facing healthcare providers today, such as patient overcrowding, emergency department diversions, slow bed turnover, and poor resource utilization to name a few. Agility is helping hospitals manage their resources better and offering customers almost an immediate ROI," said Mr. Carney. "I am very pleased to be elected to a leadership position on Agility's board."

Currently Mr. Carney is Diamond Healthcare Corp.'s chief administrative officer.
