Comprehensive Care Corporation Elects Jairo A. Estrada to its Board of Directors

TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Comprehensive Care Corporation ("CompCare" or the "Company") (OTC BB: CHCR), which provides behavioral health, pharmacy management and substance abuse services, is pleased to announce the appointment of international businessman Jairo A. Estrada to its Board of Directors effective immediately. Mr. Estrada has served as a consultant to the Company for the marketing of its innovative pharmacy cost-containment program since August 2012.

Mr. Estrada has had an impressive business career, owning and operating several successful companies, most notably Garden Way, Inc., a marketer of branded consumer and commercial outdoor power equipment. Garden Way was one of the first U.S. companies to penetrate the Chinese market through its partnership with the government of China to manufacture sickle bar mowers to be sold in the world's most populous nation. In addition, he is currently the Chairman of NSC Puerto Rico, Inc., a manufacturing company servicing the pharmaceutical industry on the island of Puerto Rico.

"Mr. Estrada's decision to join our Board of Directors is reflective of the progress the Company has made in the last two years as well as the Company's prospect for future growth. Mr. Estrada has a proven track record of generating corporate growth and assisting businesses in prospering, not only in the U.S. but abroad. I believe that the Company will benefit greatly from Mr. Estrada's input both as an entrepreneur and a Board member," said Mr. Clark A. Marcus, CompCare Chairman and CEO.

Mr. Estrada has served on the board of directors of numerous companies in the past, including Chase Manhattan Bank, Global Crossing, Garden Way Inc., Stair Master Inc., Russell Sage Colleges, and the Emma Willard School. He has also been a guest speaker at several distinguished organizations, including The Aspen Institute. Mr. Estrada earned a Bachelor's Degree in Economics and in Business Administration and a Master's Degree in Organizational Behavioral Sciences from SUNY at Buffalo, New York. 

"Clark Marcus and his team have designed and are now positioned to introduce to the healthcare marketplace a revolutionary new concept -- a fully-supported guarantee of savings to their clients by way of a substantial reduction in their annual pharmaceutical spend. I have been following the Company's progress and the development of their pharmacy program, and I believe that this new concept will have a positive impact on both the healthcare industry and the Company's growth. I am eager to be a part of this growth and honored to have been asked to join the Company's Board of Directors," said Mr. Estrada.
