Date:3/3/2009

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Specialists On Call, Inc. (SOC) announced today that it is expanding the states in which it provides service, including Montana.

Dr. Joe Peterson, CEO, described the company's ongoing expansion, "We are pleased that our model for providing hospitals with immediate 24/7 access to neurology on-call coverage is generating demand in new states and facilities. Our model delivers clinical and financial benefits to our hospital clients and their patients. At the same time, we relieve local neurologists of the burden of call, while not taking referrals or procedures from them. In fact, our partners consistently expand their acute neurology volumes in our model creating a win for all participants, which is accelerating the growth of our business. We are looking forward to working with hospitals in Montana in 2009. It is a large state with a unique geography and population that is ideally suited for a telemedicine company such as ours. We look forward to expanding the emergency neurology resources available to hospitals in Montana in the year ahead."

SOC is a private provider of emergency neurology consultations by telemedical link, and is accredited by the Joint Commission as an ambulatory care organization. Karen Deli, SVP for Operations, explained, "Our successful offering is built upon a track record of clinical excellence that has our team of affiliated neurologists as its foundation. Because our affiliated neurologists must be licensed in each state in which we operate in order to be credentialed at each of our clients, our expansion requires substantial investments of time and money. Our 2008 investment in licensing will add more than ten states to our coverage area in 2009."

Dr. Peterson summarized, "With every chance we get to expand our service, we get the chance to extend access to state-of-the-art neurology care to emergency patients that otherwise have to do without. In many emergencies, but especially in acute strokes, our ability to intervene in minutes can have a remarkable impact upon the patient's recovery, dramatically bettering the lives of patients and their families."

Specialists On Call, Inc., is a private, national, professionally managed, physician led telemedicine company that provides access to the clinical expertise of a team of university and private practice specialists through a consolidated teleconferencing, PACS and EMR system. With offices in Los Angeles and Washington, DC, SOC is committed to extending access to professional on-call specialty physician support to patients in all settings and geographies, with special expertise in urban and suburban hospitals and hospital systems.
