 MEDISCUS GROUP ANNOUNCES NEW CORPORATE FINANCIAL OFFICERS
 AKRON, Ohio, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Mediscus Group, Inc. which recently moved its national headquarters from Buena Park, Calif. to Akron, has named a new chief financial officer and filled two other top corporate financial positions to round out its newly consolidated headquarters staff, announced Richard G. Bear, president and chief executive officer.
 Gregory J. Czarnecki, former vice president for finance at Cellular One of northeast Ohio, is the new chief financial officer at Mediscus, one of the nation's leading manufacturers and distributors of specialty beds for acutely ill and injured patients.
 Czarnecki, a certified public accountant with an M.B.A. from the University of Texas at El Paso, has more than 18 years of professional financial management and consulting experience, including international transactions, banking relationships, taxation, budgeting and internal auditing.
 Lynne E. Gething, who has spent the last 14 years in various financial management positions at Combustion Engineering and affiliated companies across the country, has been named to the new position of cash manager at Mediscus.
 Mitchell E. Bryk, manager of multi-state tax consulting in the Cleveland office of Price Waterhouse, and former state tax audit manager and senior tax accountant at BP America headquarters in Cleveland, has been appointed to the new position of tax manager.
 "We are extremely fortunate to retain such highly qualified and talented individuals to direct and manage our financial operations," Bear commented. "Each one of these individuals possesses strong and impressive credentials in areas of financial management that are key to our plans for continuing improvements in our overall operations and our new business development."
 Mediscus, which had sales of more than $20 million last year, employs more than 250 people in 25 locations around the country. Its customers include more than 600 acute care hospitals and more than 200 skilled nursing facilities nationwide.
 Czarnecki was responsible for cash management, accounting, credit and collections, customer relations, real estate acquisitions and construction, and human resources functions at Cellular One, a $45-million cellular telephone company headquartered in Cleveland. Before that, he served as controller at BTK Industries, Inc., a major children's clothing manufacturer based in El Paso. BTK's line included Billy the Kid and Bill Blass. Prior to that, he was controller at Globe Universal Science, Inc., also in El Paso. He began his career in the San Diego office of KPMG Peat Marwick where he was a supervising senior auditor.
 Among her varied assignments for Combustion Engineering and affiliates, Gething, who has an M.B.A. from Ohio State University, served as manager of financial systems for Dry Branch Kaolin, an $85-million mining and manufacturing company spun off by parent Georgia Kaolin and sold in 1991. Gething was responsible for moving all corporate financial operations from New Jersey to Georgia, as well as training, and instituting all banking and cash management systems. Earlier, she served as manager of budgets and cost accounting for Georgia Kaolin; manager of financial systems and reporting for C-E Refractories in Valley Forge, Pa.; accounting supervisor and financial analyst for Basic, Inc. in Cleveland; and financial reporting supervisor and staff accountant at C-E Industrial Products Group in Valley Forge.
 Bryk, who has an M.B.A. from Cleveland State University, joined Price Waterhouse as tax consulting manager in 1989, where his responsibilities included planning, compliance, audit and appeals, principally as they related to major transactions and reviews of existing business structures. At BP America, his responsibilities encompassed tax work for more than 100 subsidiaries in all 50 states. Before joining BP in 1981, he was tax accountant for Cleveland-based Medusa Cement Corp., and prior to that, he was assistant to the controller at Cleveland Metal Abrasive Corp., also in Cleveland.
