24-Hour Accessibility, Clinical Expertise and Timely Local Deliveries to Help Florida Hospices Ensure Highest Level of Care, Comfort for Their Patients

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - October 10, 2008) - OnePoint Patient Care, an independent hospice pharmacy services provider, announced today that it is continuing its national expansion with the establishment of its newest pharmacy facility in Miramar, Fla. The facility will serve hospice patients in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties.

"By providing our hospice partners exceptional local prescription filling and delivery services, coupled with our new clinical advisory services and cost savings programs, we make it easy for them to provide the highest level of patient care in the most cost-effective manner," said Jeffrey Hohl, President and Chief Operating Officer of OnePoint Patient Care. "We are pleased to bring this unprecedented level of service to Florida hospices."

OnePoint Patient Care is the nation's leading local hospice pharmacy services provider, filling prescriptions, creating custom compounds and providing home deliveries for an average of 7,500 patients per day. The pharmacy's local operations provide 24-hour accessibility, personal interaction, accurate prescriptions and prompt delivery, allowing hospices to get patients their medications quickly, simply and reliably. In addition, OnePoint is launching clinical consulting and cost management services in the fourth quarter that give its hospice partners a complete local dispensing and clinical solution that no other pharmacy or pharmacy benefits manager can provide.

Leading OnePoint's Florida team will be John Otterbeck. John will serve as President of OnePoint's Florida division, overseeing operations and customer relations for the Florida market. John comes to OnePoint with more than 30 years of experience in management and customer relations, most recently with Atlantic Coca-Cola Bottling Company, where he served as the General Manager and Director of Sales.

OnePoint has been serving Arizona hospice patients for more than 20 years. Building on its dominant position there, it acquired pharmacies and began serving hospices in Nevada in 2007 and Oklahoma in early 2008. In addition to its organic expansion into Florida, the company plans to open another new location in Illinois in the fourth quarter of 2008 and to expand aggressively into other markets in 2009.

"We are experiencing tremendous growth right now and are very excited to be adding Florida to the list of states in which we are able to bring our unique and cost-efficient services to hospices, allowing them to provide the best possible care to their patients," said James O. Otterbeck, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of OnePoint Patient Care. "The hospice market is incredibly enthusiastic about the benefits our unique service model provides them, and the resulting demand will lead us to double our service area by 2009."
