 MINNEAPOLIS, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Medisys, Inc.(NASDAQ: MEDS),

Their revenues for the 12-month period ended March 31, 1992, were approximately $3.7 million.
 "We feel this acquisition fits well with the objectives we have identified for our Long Term Care Program. It represents a continuation of the expansion strategy we outlined for 1992," said William J. Brummond, Medisys' chief executive officer. "Not only does Pharmacy Consultants fit well with our long-term care objectives, but it also serves as a base from which to grow our home IV therapy business in yet another important market."
