Medco Announces Organizational Changes
Date:9/25/2008

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MHS) today announced the following organizational changes to further enhance its products and services for clients and members:

Timothy Wentworth has been named Group President, Employer Accounts, effective immediately. Formerly president and CEO of Accredo Health Group, Inc., Tim will now lead Medco's Employer Accounts Customer Group, responsible for Medco's self-insured clients, large and small; and

Steven Fitzpatrick, formerly chief operating officer of Accredo, will assume the role of President of Accredo, responsible for continuing the momentum of specialty pharmacy as one of the fastest growing segments in health care and advancing the company's high marketplace performance and clinical excellence.

"With its new scale, the timing is right to optimize and leverage Medco's operational capabilities, while at the same time honoring Accredo's unique attributes -- including deep relationships with patients, physicians, payors and pharmaceutical manufacturers," said Kenny Klepper, Medco president and chief operating officer. "These changes underscore the synergies possible across all our business organizations, and I am confident that Tim and Steve will continue to take these positions to new heights.

"During his tenure in Memphis, Tim led the rapid and successful integration of Accredo into the mainstream of Medco. At the time of the acquisition, Accredo contributed about $3 billion in revenue; today it's on track to exceed $7 billion.

"Steve has distinguished himself as a dynamic business executive with a deep understanding of Accredo's business. Along with his Memphis-based leadership team, Steve will continue Tim's good work and will take the next steps in sharing Accredo's best practices across Medco, while at the same time tapping Medco's resources to the benefit of Accredo."
