Further Acquisition for (London Based) Schofield Healthcare Media
Date:1/23/2009

CHICAGO and LONDON, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Schofield Healthcare Media Ltd (SHML), a division of Schofield Media Europe Ltd, announced on the 16th January that it has acquired Medical Education Partnership Ltd (MEP).

MEP was set up by Jane Jones in 1997 as the publishing and medical wing of GCI Healthcare. Following a management buy-out in June 2002, it established itself as an independent medical education company specialising in effective, targeted and intelligent medical communications.

The company portfolio includes a number of key educational resources for health care professionals in print, online and in person. MEP employs a professional team of highly-skilled people with extensive publishing and clinical experience and an advisory board of leading clinical experts, who will continue to work with the company. The sale of the company follows Jane's decision to retire at the end of this month.

Jane Jones -- "I am delighted that MEP will continue under the Schofield banner. Our philosophy at MEP has been to produce high quality, independent educational material which puts the health professional first and I believe that Schofield is an expanding publishing company which supports the same values."

This transaction represents the 8th acquisition by Schofield Media Group LLC in three years.

Alan Freeman, Director of Schofield Healthcare Media, commented: "Acquiring MEP strengthens our reach in the healthcare sector and its strong reputation, particularly in wound care and diabetes, dovetails perfectly with our earlier acquisitions of Healthcomm UK and SB Communications group. Also, the opportunity to bring in the highly regarded and vastly experienced team of medical communications specialists was too good an opportunity to miss."

Founder and CEO, Andrew Schofield concluded: "We have a strong commitment to grow our presence in the healthcare sector and the MEP acquisition is another very positive step towards this."

Founded in 1999, Schofield Media Group publishes business-to-business magazines and operates conferences and events in the United States, Europe and Asia. The company maintains offices in London, Norwich, Aberdeen and Essex in the United Kingdom and Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles and New York City in the United States. Divisions include Schofield Publishing, Schofield Healthcare Media, Schofield Media Chicago, Ideal Media and RedCoat Publishing. http://www.schofieldmediagroup.com
