Date:3/6/2008

COLUMBIA, S.C., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Companion Global Healthcare Inc. today announced the addition of three hospitals located in Singapore to its network of overseas medical facilities, bringing its total network membership to seven hospitals.

Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Gleneagles Hospital and East Shore Hospital, all operated by Parkway Health (http://www.ParkwayHealth.com), have agreed to treat Companion Global Healthcare's U.S. clients at pre-negotiated, in-network rates. The hospitals offer a wide range of medical and surgical services at rates lower than those typically charged by hospitals in the United States.

"Patients in increasing numbers are crossing international borders seeking top-quality care at affordable prices," said Dan Snyder, Parkway Health's CEO. "Our three world-class hospitals in Singapore have fully English-speaking, reputable specialists and nurses who offer some of the best treatment available anywhere in the world.

"We are delighted to be working with Companion Global Healthcare to help their beneficiaries who seek health care services overseas, specifically here in Singapore where many U.S. companies and the military have established operations."

Mount Elizabeth, Gleneagles and East Shore each hold the prestigious Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation.

"The addition of Parkway Health means our individual clients and employer groups have more outstanding options for obtaining fully credentialed medical care at affordable, all-inclusive prices," said David Boucher, Companion Global Healthcare's assistant vice president of health care services.

Based in Columbia, S.C., Companion Global Healthcare (http://www.CompanionGlobalHealthcare.com) provides streamlined access to JCI- accredited hospitals for those who elect to travel abroad for health care. The company provides a single launch point for appointments, travel services, case management and follow-up care in the United States.

All BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina and BlueChoice(R) HealthPlan of South Carolina members have access to Companion Global Healthcare's network hospitals at discounted rates. Companion Global Healthcare also serves the uninsured, and is available to contract with insurance companies and employer groups that wish to include an overseas option in their benefit plans.

In addition to the Parkway facilities, Companion Global Healthcare's network includes Anadolu Medical Center in Istanbul, Turkey; Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand; Clinica Biblica Hospital in San Jose, Costa Rica; and Blackrock Clinic in Dublin, Ireland.
