REHABCARE GRANTED TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST COMPREHENSIVE CARE

 REHABCARE GRANTED TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER
 AGAINST COMPREHENSIVE CARE
 ST. LOUIS, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- RehabCare Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: RHBC) announced that it has been granted a temporary restraining order preventing Comprehensive Care Corporation (NYSE: CMP) from selling its 425,000 shares of RehabCare common stock to anyone other than RehabCare.
 RehabCare had asserted its prior right to purchase the shares last week after being notified that Continental Medical Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CNM) had exercised an option on the shares granted to it by Comprehensive Care. As previously reported, RehabCare received approximately $3.8 million of new capital yesterday in connection with the completion of a private placement of its preferred stock. RehabCare used the proceeds to tender the cash required to repurchase the shares at a scheduled closing, but Comprehensive Care refused to deliver the shares, in violation of its prior agreement with RehabCare.
 The lawsuit, filed in the Circuit Court of the County of St. Louis, Missouri, seeks, among other things, an order requiring Comprehensive Care to comply with its contractual obligation to deliver the shares. RehabCare has deposited with the Court the full $3.8 million cost of redeeming the stock, pending resolution of the lawsuit.
 RehabCare, based in St. Louis, is a leading provider of inpatient and outpatient physical medicine and rehabilitation program services on a contract basis in conjunction with acute-care and extended-care facilities throughout the United States.
