Date:1/28/2009

The state-of-the-art facility, located just outside of Phoenix, Arizona, will serve as a unique learning environment for the professional development and educational advancement of Grifols' employees.

GLENDALE, Ariz., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Grifols SA (Grifols), a global healthcare company based in Barcelona, Spain, inducted its first class of students to the Grifols Academy of Plasmapheresis in Glendale, Arizona. The Academy is an 8,500 square foot facility adjacent to a fully operational plasma donor facility that will serve as the Company's central location for employee education, training and development. Grifols' investment in the Academy and adjacent plasma donor facility brings new jobs and economic growth to the area while offering advanced education and career development for Grifols' employees.

Employees admitted to the Academy have the opportunity to pursue learning in a broad range of disciplines.

Plasmapheresis is a process for obtaining human plasma that was developed by Grifols in 1951, and has given rise to the large-scale production of plasma therapies to treat hundreds of thousands of individuals with rare and often life-threatening diseases and conditions.
