VANCOUVER, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - CRH Medical announced today that for the year ended December 31, 2008, it had 27,348 patient visits at its Centers for Colorectal Health compared to 13,461 for the same period in 2007. In addition, as a result of it's Partnership Program, the Company sold 6,840 units of its CRH O'Regan Hemorrhoid Banding Technology compared to 1,920 for the same period in 2007. The Company trained more than 100 physicians in its Partnership Program during the second half of 2008, versus only 9 physicians in 2007.

Commenting on the these results and plans going forward, Edward Wright, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Although we do not yet have audited financial reports, we anticipate a significant increase in revenue in 2008 versus 2007, as well as a decrease in our losses. We continue to focus on cutting expenses and increasing our activities in our highest margin business segment, our Partnership Program in an attempt, to achieve cash flow positive operations as soon as possible in the current year. We are very excited about the opportunity our Partnership Program provides our partner physicians and their patients."

Through its Partnership Program the Company sells its patented proprietary hemorrhoid banding technology, treatment protocols, marketing and operational experience directly to physicians who see patients that may be in need of hemorrhoid treatment. By adopting the use of the CRH Technology, the physician increases practice revenues, expands the continuum of care and provides a fast, painless hemorrhoid solution to patients.

The Company expects to publish its full 2008 financial and annual report by the end of April, 2009.
