 JOHNSON & JOHNSON HEALTH MANAGEMENT ACQUIRES ASSETS OF GENERAL HEALTH
 NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) reported today the purchase of the assets of General Health, Inc. (GHI), a Washington-based health risk management firm, by Johnson & Johnson Health Management, Inc. (JJHMI), its employee health promotion unit. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
 Peter H. Soderberg, president of Johnson & Johnson Health Management, said the acquisition augments JJHMI's existing line of health risk assessments and related health education and behavior change programs, which it currently provides to 70 major U.S. corporations, universities, and hospitals.
 "Our purchase of GHI's assets will enable us to develop a wider array of scientifically based health risk management products and services for employers throughout the United States and Canada," he noted. "In addition, our customers ultimately will benefit from the computerized linkage of GHI's health risk assessments to JJHMI's national network of more than 5,000 qualified providers offering community-based health and fitness programs."
 Soderberg said Johnson & Johnson will begin managing General Health's office and computer facilities in Washington effective immediately. No significant personnel changes are expected to occur as a result of the change in ownership.
