Date:3/5/2009

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgical Care Affiliates (SCA), one of the country's largest providers of specialty surgical services, announced today that it has entered into a joint venture relationship with Hawaii Pacific Health to construct and operate a new outpatient surgery center in downtown Honolulu.

Under the terms of the partnership, SCA will relocate its existing Surgicare of Hawaii outpatient surgery center at 550 South Beretania Street to a new location expected to open some time in 2010. SCA and Hawaii Pacific Health are in the final stage of site selection for the new facility. Surgicare of Hawaii will continue to operate at its current location until the new center is ready.

Under SCA's day-to-day-management, the relocated Surgicare of Hawaii will operate as a multi-specialty center offering an array of medical services, including orthopedics, pain management, ophthalmology, general surgery, otolaryngology, urology, obstetrics/gynecology, plastics and podiatry.

"This partnership allows us to meet the increasing community demand for ambulatory surgical capacity in a patient-friendly environment," said Chuck Sted, Chief Executive Officer of Hawaii Pacific Health. "The new, expanded facility will not only enhance our ability to offer patients leading edge outpatient services in a convenient location, but it also will free up inpatient capacity in our other facilities to deliver more complex procedures and care."

"We are very pleased to be working with, Hawaii Pacific Health, a system with an outstanding reputation as a healthcare provider," said Andrew Hayek, Chief Executive Officer of SCA. "Their leadership recognizes the need for a high quality, cost effective, outpatient surgical facility, and we will be able to jointly meet that need."
