 ERNST & YOUNG STRENGTHENS LOCAL HEALTH CARE CAPABILITIES
 BY ACQUIRING PANNELL KERR FORSTER PRACTICE
 PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Ernst & Young, responding to a growing economical surge of the region's health care industry, has announced that 26 full-time health care professionals from Pannell Kerr Forster have joined the Philadelphia Ernst & Young practice.
 The new members of Ernst & Young's expanded health care group will provide audit, tax and consulting services to the firm's healthcare practice. Pannell Kerr Forster's regional practice in southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey adds 25 area hospitals and long- term care facilities to Ernst & Young's health care clientele, and solidifies the firm's position as a leader in serving the health care community locally, as well as nationally.
 The move is a result of Ernst & Young's acquisition of PKF's health care practice in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
 In a related move, Ernst & Young has relocated William L. Caron, the firm's east region director of health care consulting, to the Philadelphia office to concentrate additional health care consulting resources within this marketplace.
 According to Roger Bjorkquist, Ernst & Young's health care industry services leader in the Philadelphia office, "These professionals will add significant depth to our ability to serve health care organizations throughout the region, and will bring an expert source of business advice to the health care environment."
 "We're extremely pleased to become a part of Ernst & Young, as we share an established commitment to provide quality service to the health care industry," noted Emanuel Lauria, PKF's former office management partner in Philadelphia, and Ernst & Young partner.
 Senior professionals joining Ernst & Young's Philadelphia health care practice include:
 -- Emanuel Lauria, 49, partner, was Pannell Kerr Forster's office managing partner in Philadelphia, where he built a significant health care practice during the past 15 years.
 -- James Nolan, 38, partner, managed many of the Pannell Kerr Forster health care client relationships in southern New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
 -- Tom Scott, 34, senior manager, provided audit and consulting services to health care clients including hospitals, nursing homes, home health agencies and others.
 -- William L. Caron, partner and director of east region health care consulting practice, directs firm's consulting services to health care institutions throughout the eastern corridor.
