     SIGNATURE HOSPITAL CORPORATION MOVES HQ TO HOUSTON
          --Growing company joins 1,200 health care-related companies in region--

Houston, TX – Signature Hospital Corp. announced today that it will relocate its corporate
headquarters from Dallas to Houston effective May 11.

“Moving to Houston allows our leadership team to work together even more closely as we enter our
next growth phase,” said Charles R. Miller, president and CEO of Signature. “As we continue to
grow the company, we anticipate that many of the new resources that will be added will come from
Houston. Therefore, being there saves us the expense of recruiting and relocating people”. With
the pending purchase of its fourth hospital in just over a year, Signature continues to execute its
growth strategy of acquiring hospitals located in smaller to mid-sized markets.

Signature has leased more than 20,300 square feet of office space at 363 North Belt in Houston.
The company will have approximately twenty employees assigned to the location. Miller said
proximity to a major airport and insuring adequate but affordable space for future growth were the
primary reasons for the move. “We want to avoid having to relocate with each growth spurt. The
new space will give us ample room to accommodate our expansion needs for some time”.
