MELVILLE, N.Y., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/-- Gentiva Health Services, Inc., the nation's leading provider of comprehensive home health and related services, today announced it has promoted Thomas M. Boelsen to Senior Vice President, CareCentrix.

With this promotion, Boelsen continues to lead the Company's ancillary care benefit management unit providing coordination and delivery of services to managed care members across the country. He was named to head CareCentrix as a Gentiva corporate Vice President in March 2007 and previously served as its Vice President-Finance since 2002.

Boelsen has played a pivotal role in CareCentrix' strategies to renew and expand existing business and focus on the development of new relationships with government-related managed care programs. He has more than two decades of experience in the home health industry and served earlier in his career with the public accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers. He holds a bachelor of science degree in accounting from Bryant University.

CareCentrix, which generated approximately $214.5 million in net revenues for the first nine months of 2007 (or more than 23% of Gentiva's total net revenues for the period) , delivers a broad array of national and regional homecare administrative and clinical services to managed care members. Services provided through the CareCentrix network include skilled nursing and therapies, acute and chronic infusion therapies, respiratory therapies and home medical equipment services.

"Since he was first chosen to lead CareCentrix last March, Tom has shown exceptional drive and energy in pursuing this unit's growth strategies," said Gentiva Chairman and CEO Ron Malone. "CareCentrix continues to be what we believe is the home health industry's best and most important solution for managed care. We look forward to the continued expansion of its customer base under Tom's leadership."
