Date:10/5/2007

BERLIN, Germany, October 5 /PRNewswire/ -- American health support service provider Healthways is opening its first service center in Germany in Hennigsdorf, Brandenburg. Healthways, based in Nashville, Tennessee, will employ 100 workers in the short-term and hopes to ex­pand the workforce to 250 in the medium term.
