Date:4/26/2011

BOCA RATON, Fla., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Premier healthcare alliance, a network of more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals and 73,000-plus other healthcare sites working together to achieve high quality, cost-effective care, has awarded Sensus Healthcare, Inc., the leading provider of FDA-approved Superficial Radiotherapy committed to providing a viable treatment option for millions of skin cancer sufferers, a group purchasing agreement for the SRT-100™. Sensus was awarded a sole three-year contract for Superficial Radiotherapy with Premier Purchasing Partners L.P., the group purchasing unit of Premier, Inc. The agreement, which is in effect through April 1, 2014 extends Premier members preferred pricing on Sensus' Superficial Radiotherapy systems for treatment of basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma skin cancers.

"We are extremely pleased to partner with such a prestigious organization such as Premier and their members. We look forward to working with their healthcare professionals in establishing the SRT-100™ as the preferred choice for non-invasive skin cancer treatment," says Joe Sardano, CEO of Sensus Healthcare.

"According to experts, 50% of the booming 60+ population will be diagnosed with skin cancer. It's important for both physicians and patients to have choices for treatment. Surgery is simply not the best alternative for every patient these days," added Steve Cohen, VP Strategic Initiatives at Sensus Healthcare. "Much of our population has existing medical conditions that are better served by treating with non-invasive Photon X-Ray Therapy."

Over 2.8 million new skin cancer cases are diagnosed annually worldwide! Available for treatment of basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, the SRT-100™ treats skin cancers, especially those requiring difficult or extensive surgery in sensitive areas of the head and neck regions - the fold in the nose, eyelids, lips, corner of the mouth, and the lining of the ear - that would otherwise lead to a less than desirable cosmetic outcome without the use of anesthetics or skin grafting.

The newly redesigned SRT-100™ offers improved mobility features and a streamlined look to simplify the non-melanoma treatment process while bringing safe, painless and effective skin cancer treatment to patients, right in the physician office. The SRT-100™ is powered with a standard electrical outlet and offers an easy, automated set-up procedure.

It is the only system of its kind available in the U.S. to treat non-melanoma skin cancers, and is now in use worldwide. SRT is a low energy radiotherapy that goes no deeper than the thickness of the skin. It is a proven non-invasive procedure that has been used to treat over 6,000 non-melanoma skin cancer patients in over 50 locations worldwide, and is highly recognized and reimbursable. Because the superficial x-rays concentrate radiation dose on the skin surface, the treatment has several advantages over conventional linear accelerators and surgical procedures.

The SRT-100™ is the treatment of choice for those patients seeking a non-surgical treatment option for skin cancer. Sensus offers a viable alternative, one that uses safe and effective low-energy radiotherapy to treat non-melanoma skin cancers. Many skin cancer patients may not even know that they have treatment options beyond surgery, which can lead to scarring and infection. Part of the process is educating the public that there are other ways to treat certain types of skin cancer - particularly around the neck, face, and scalp where 80% of skin cancer cases develop.
