HELIAN HEALTH GROUP ACQUIRES A MEDICAL PRACTICE IN CONYERS, GA AND WILL OPEN A NEW LOCATION IN STOCKBRIDGE, GA

 MONTEREY, Calif., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Helian Health Group Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: HHGR), the dominant provider of occupational health care in Atlanta, announced today that it acquired a medical practice in Conyers, Ga., on Dec. 31, 1992. Additionally, the company announced today that it has scheduled the opening of a new location in Stockbridge, Ga., on Feb. 1, 1993. These two new locations will raise the number of Helian's medical facilities in Atlanta to eight and add to the company's ability to serve employers and medical patients located in all quadrants of the Atlanta metropolitan area. These actions will also bring Helian's total medical care facilities to 20 nationwide. The terms of the acquisition and start-up were not disclosed.
 Occupational health care is the provision of work-related medical services. In Atlanta, Helian serves more than 6,000 client companies in the metropolitan area through six (now expanding to eight) local facilities. Helian provides a full range of occupational health and prevention services, including:
 -- Treatment of work-related injuries
 -- Placement examinations
 -- Environmental examinations
 -- Executive/annual examinations
 -- FAA examinations
 -- National examination program for Fortune 500 companies
 -- Physical therapy and psychological counseling, as well as orthopaedic and neurosurgical services
 -- Safety and health education
 -- Wellness programs such as stress management and smoking cessation
 -- Noise surveys and hazardous substance monitoring
 -- Drug screening (including NIDA)
 Helian Health Group Inc. is a progressive medical services company. Helian is dedicated to solving the major health problem that confronts the United States today -- namely, lowering the high cost of medical services. To this end, Helian specializes in two modern methods of providing health care:
 Occupational Health Care:
 Helian is the dominant provider of occupational health care in Tucson, Ariz.; Fresno, Calif.; and Atlanta. The company has more than 10,000 employer clients and attends to more than 250,000 patient visits per year.
 Surgery Operations:
 Helian operates one of the nation's leading ambulatory surgery centers (Surgecenter of Palo Alto, Calif.). Late last year, the company opened a second ambulatory surgery center in Northridge, Calif.; purchased a third in Lodi, Calif.; and is developing a fourth center in Salinas. Helian is actively introducing new-concept surgical hospitals to the medical community. The first -- the Recovery Inn(SM) of Los Gatos, Calif. -- opened June 1, 1992. The second -- the Recovery Inn(SM) of Menlo Park, Calif. -- opened in December 1992. Both of these Recovery Inns(SM) will enable patients to undergo surgery and to recuperate in a hotel-like setting -- at a low cost to the payor.
