Date:8/20/2012

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Comprehensive Care Corporation ("CompCare" or the "Company") (OTC BB: CHCR), which provides behavioral health, substance abuse and psychotropic pharmacy management services, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Jairo A. Estrada, who was instrumental in growing a gardening and yard care company from $7 million to $400 million. Mr. Estrada will advise senior management in implementing a plan designed to increase the Company's revenue and assist in the marketing of its innovative pharmacy cost-containment program.

Clark A. Marcus, Chairman and CEO said, "On behalf of senior management, I would like to express how excited and pleased we are to add Mr. Estrada, a highly regarded senior executive, to the CompCare team. Mr. Estrada's career achievements are nothing short of remarkable. We believe his business acumen and proven capabilities in generating substantial corporate growth will be of great benefit to the Company. I look forward to the Company's continued progression with the help of Mr. Estrada's knowledge and guidance."

Mr. Estrada was named President and Chief Operating officer of Garden Way Inc. in 1984 and subsequently became Chairman and CEO.  The Company produced and marketed a wide range of well known outdoor power equipment, including the TROY-BILT® Roto Tiller and the BOLENS® Tractor.  He assisted in developing a multi-channel distribution system to increase company revenues. 

Mr. Estrada was also instrumental in the acquisition by Garden Way of StairMaster Sports/Medical Products, Inc., a major worldwide designer and manufacturer or therapeutic exercise equipment, and five other businesses, to exponentially increase the company's revenues.

As CEO, Mr. Estrada also guided one of the first U.S. companies to penetrate the Chinese market and sell products in the world's most populous nation.  He also serves as Chairman of a manufacturing company servicing the pharmaceutical industry in Puerto Rico.

Mr. Estrada received 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.  He has served on the Board of Directors of numerous companies, including the leading telecommunications company in Puerto Rico; the Chase Manhattan Bank Board of Directors and its Executive Committee, and Global Crossing.

"In a sector where costs continue to rise, I was intrigued by CompCare's recent pharmaceutical initiative, a service with the potential to significantly reduce costs for corporations, as well as the success Clark Marcus and his team have already accomplished. I am eager to work with CompCare's team and confident that I can contribute to the Company increasing its share of the pharmacy management market and an even greater level of corporate success in its healthcare initiatives," said Mr. Estrada.
