 HELIAN HEALTH GROUP OPENS NEW OUTPATIENT
 SURGERY CENTER IN NORTHRIDGE, CALIFORNIA
 MONTEREY, Calif., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Helian Health Group Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: HHGR) announced today the opening of its newest ambulatory surgery center (ASC): the Northridge Surgery Center, located in Northridge, Calif. (a suburb of Los Angeles). The facility is designed to deliver quality outpatient surgical services, in a convenient setting, at significantly lower costs. The 10,500 square-foot ASC has four operating rooms, an endoscopic laboratory and a special procedure room.
 William A. Hines, chief executive officer of Northridge Surgery Center said, "The center will often provide significant savings to patients and insurance carriers -- our fees are typically 20 percent to 40 percent lower than hospital surgery charges. Northridge Surgery Center will offer a safe and often less stressful alternative to traditional hospitals for those seeking many types of elective surgeries. Additionally, the center's patients will be able to recover at home in the comfort of familiar surroundings."
 Thomas D. Wilson, president of Helian said, "We are very excited by the opening of the Northridge Surgery Center because such a large number of community physicians have been waiting for it to be available to their patients.
 "In excess of 3,000,000 surgeries are performed in freestanding surgery centers each year in the United States. In fact, nearly 60 percent of all surgeries in the United States are now routinely performed on an outpatient basis including orthopedic; gynecologic; eye, ear, nose and throat; reconstructive; urologic; gastroenteric; and general surgical procedures. Northridge Surgery Center will offer surgical procedures in these and other outpatient categories," concluded Wilson.
 Northridge Surgery Center is owned by Helian and 70 physician partners. Helian will operate the facility and is the sole managing general partner.
