Date:2/12/2008

COLUMBIA, S.C., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Clinica Biblica Hospital, a general hospital in San Jose, Costa Rica, that holds the prestigious Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation, has joined Companion Global Healthcare Inc.'s network of overseas hospitals, Companion Global Healthcare announced today.

Network inclusion means Clinica Biblica (http://www.ClinicaBiblica.com ) can provide surgical and other medical treatment to Companion Global Healthcare clients at pre-negotiated, in-network rates. The addition of Clinica Biblica brings the number of hospitals in the Companion Global Healthcare network to four, and the company plans to add more facilities.

"We're excited about joining forces with Companion Global Healthcare and allowing people to see the quality of care available at Clinica Biblica Hospital," said Brad Cook, director of Clinica Biblica's international department.

"Clinica Biblica offers the latest in technology to our individual clients and members of our employer groups who choose to travel abroad for health care," said David Boucher, Companion Global Healthcare's assistant vice president of health care services. "Costa Rica is only a short flight from the United States, and Clinica Biblica offers our clients affordable, all- inclusive rates."

Companion Global Healthcare (http://www.CompanionGlobalHealthcare.com ), based in Columbia, S.C., offers streamlined access to JCI-accredited medical facilities that provide services at rates substantially lower than many U.S. hospitals. The company was established in 2007 to serve as a single launch point for appointments, information, travel services, case management and follow-up care in the United States.

All BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and BlueChoice(R) HealthPlan of South Carolina members have access to Companion Global Healthcare's network hospitals for select surgical procedures. Companion Global Healthcare also serves the uninsured, and contracts with insurance companies and employer groups that wish to include an overseas option in their health benefit plans.
