Date:10/4/2010

MELVILLE, N.Y., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Months after earthquakes in Haiti, Chile and China, and a flood in Pakistan shattered the lives of hundreds of thousands of survivors, Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC), the largest provider of health care products and services to office-based practitioners, is continuing to contribute resources to help international groups assisting individuals, families and entire villages.

"Team Schein and many of our friends outside of the Company recognize that relief efforts in Haiti, Chile, China and Pakistan will take a great deal of time," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein.  "We applaud the work of the organizations receiving our financial support and are proud to sustain our pledge to help survivors still in need in the affected areas where health care facilities were destroyed."

As part of this sustained support, Henry Schein has earmarked an additional $190,000 to 17 organizations involved in ongoing relief efforts in the four nations.  This cash donation through Henry Schein Cares, the Company's global social responsibility program, follows January's immediate donation of $1 million in medical supplies to partner non-governmental organizations (NGOs) by Henry Schein and its supplier partners.  The financial donation includes contributions to the Henry Schein Cares Foundation by Team Schein Members, which were matched by the Company, as well as donations to the Foundation from outside of Henry Schein.  

Recipients of the Henry Schein Cares donation include the Afya Foundation; American Jewish World Service; the American Veterinary Medical Association; AmeriCares; Direct Relief International; GHESKIO; Give2Asia; Health Volunteers Overseas working with the American Dental Association; Heart to Heart; International Medical Corps; LDS Charities; the National Baptist Convention USA; MedShare; Pan American Health and Education Foundation (PAHEF); Oral Health of Haiti (OHOH) Coalition; Partners in Health; ShelterBox and US Fund for UNICEF.

In the past, Henry Schein Cares has responded to other disasters including the cyclone in Myanmar and earthquake in China in 2008; Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on the U.S. Gulf Coast; the 2004 Asian tsunami; the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan; and September 11.
