Date:10/8/2007

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Nashville-based Aegis has been chosen by Community Medical Centers to launch an employer-directed healthcare initiative that identifies the specific health-related needs of local employees and effectively links the three-hospital system's services and programs with the appropriate individuals. The program includes Clovis Community Medical Center, Community Regional Medical Center and Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital.

Aegis is the nation's leading healthcare business development company whose programs can currently be found in more than 4,000 employer sites across the country. The program is designed to help improve employee health while reducing employer health-related costs, including absenteeism, healthcare premiums and workers' compensation.

Aegis will provide Community Medical Centers with an employer relations specialist to oversee the day-to-day interactions with local employers along with a variety of road-tested tools, including Personal Health Profiles to determine individual health risks, Personal Health Reports, and Health Information Centers within each participating workplace. Using data gathered from the Personal Health Profiles, at-risk employees will be matched with appropriate early detection, prevention and education initiatives offered by the hospital system and its collective 1,100-member medical staff.

"We realize that employee wellness is a key concern of our local employers," said Abdul Kassir, senior vice president, managed care. "As the largest healthcare system in California's Central Valley, Community Medical Centers' exceptional staff and affiliated physicians are able to offer comprehensive early intervention and health-enhancing programs to the communities we serve."
