Gentiva(R) Health Services Acquisition Extends Certificate-of-Need Coverage in West Virginia
Date:7/1/2009

ATLANTA, July 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Gentiva Health Services, Inc. (Nasdaq: GTIV), a leading provider of comprehensive home health services, announced today that it has purchased the assets of a homecare operation from the Nicholas County Commission on behalf of the Nicholas County Board of Health in West Virginia.

Originally established in 1975 as the Nicholas Webster County Home Health Agency to serve the growing need for homecare in Nicholas County, this Medicare-certified operation today provides services for patients in the counties of Nicholas, Webster and Greenbrier. West Virginia requires a certificate-of-need (CON) by county to participate in the home health program. The purchase extends Gentiva's CON coverage to more than 20 counties throughout the state.

The transaction is being funded from Gentiva's existing cash reserves. The acquisition is not expected to have a material impact on Gentiva's financial position or results of operations in 2009.
