PHP HEALTHCARE BUYS RESEARCH FIRM

 ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- PHP Healthcare Corporation (NYSE: PPH) in a strategic move to broaden its ability to deliver managed health care products, acquired Eastwest Research Corporation of Bethesda, Md., PHP Healthcare President and Chairman Charles H. Robbins announced today.
 Eastwest Research, a consulting firm that designs systems of health care, will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of PHP Healthcare. Eastwest Research was acquired for $500,000, represented by cash and notes.
 "We view this acquisition as a real opportunity to solidify our position in the managed care arena," asserted Robbins.
