Gov. Rick Scott Visits Medytox Solutions, Inc. to Call Attention to Job Creation

Rapid Growth at Company's Riviera Beach Laboratory Will Add 90 Jobs

WEST PALM BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 6, 2015) - Today, Governor Rick Scott visited Medytox Solutions' (OTCQB: MMMS) Riviera Beach-based facility, Epic Reference Lab, to formally recognize the company as being emblematic of Florida's economic turnaround and as a prime example of tangible job creation underway in Palm Beach County. Medytox, which owns and operates a diverse family of healthcare companies, has grown from a handful of employees in 2011 to more than 300 today, and most of those jobs are based in Florida. From its West Palm Beach headquarters, the company operates a half-dozen clinical testing laboratories like Epic, an Electronic Health Records provider, a medical billing firm, and a NASDAQ-listed company that processes genetic testing for cancer patients.

In addition to the Governor, today's event featured remarks by Lieutenant Governor Carlos Lopez-Canterna; Samuel R. Mitchell, Jr., Medytox' COO; Kelly Smallridge, president and CEO of the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County; and Wendy Link of the Economic Council of Palm Beach County.

"We are on the move," said Seamus Lagan, CEO of Medytox Solutions, Inc. "Today's recognition by Governor Scott serves as testament to the growth we've achieved thus far and to the positive impact we're making in the communities in which we operate. We're not only generating revenue, but we're creating jobs -- high-wage jobs that help shape and solidify communities."

Epic Reference Lab, where today's event was held, is one of the largest reference laboratories in South Florida. The 12,000 square-foot facility opened last month and is the only lab in the U.S. to perform urinary neurotransmitter testing. The lab's advanced testing facilities have already attracted some of South Florida's top talent. Medytox Solutions, Inc. will continue hiring throughout 2015 to keep up with demand for its innovative testing services.

"We are pleased that Medytox picked Florida over other states to expand and grow. In February, we announced that Medytox will create 60 jobs in Palm Beach County and is currently ahead of their projected hiring goals and has hired 19 people since the beginning of the year," announced Governor Rick Scott earlier today. "We are proud to announce they plan to create 90 jobs in Palm Beach County."
