     Aegis Health Group Selected by Mount Carmel Health System in Ohio
        to Launch Employer-Directed Business Development Program

       (NASHVILLE, TN – October 19, 2010) – Aegis Health Group announced today that it
has been selected by Mount Carmel Health System in Columbus, Ohio, to help develop and
oversee a business development strategy designed to increase market share and help build a
healthier community. Using Aegis’ program, Mount Carmel Health System’s four hospitals will
begin working with local employers to better manage the health of their workforce and link
hospital-sponsored programs and services with the specific health-related needs of local
businesses.
       Mount Carmel Health System operates four hospitals – Mt. Carmel St. Ann’s, Mt.
Carmel New Albany Surgical Hospital, Mount Carmel East and Mount Carmel West – which
together serve more than 500,000 patients each year. Located in central Ohio, the system has
some 8,000 employees and 1,500 physicians on its medical staff.
       Through this new agreement with Aegis, these hospitals will offer employers a cost-
effective solution to address their rapidly rising health-related costs. Aegis will provide the
hospitals with proprietary tools and employer relations specialists housed on each hospital
campus to help make this happen. Using data gathered through personal health profiles, at-risk
employees will be matched with appropriate early detection, prevention and education initiatives
offered by the hospitals.
        “With an increased focus on health improvement nationally, more and more hospitals are
taking the lead in improving the health of their local communities,” said Henry Ross, president
and chief executive officer of Aegis. “As hospitals establish lasting relationships with local
employers and their workforces, they are able to grow market share and provide a valuable
benefit to area residents. It’s a win for everyone.”
                                                                                              (More)
