PMR ANNOUNCES NEW SAN DIEGO AGREEMENTS AND SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTE WITH FORMER HOSPITAL AFFILIATE

 SAN DIEGO, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- PMR Corp. (NASDAQ: PMRP) today announced that it has completed Agreements with Villa View Hospital and Scripps Health for the operation of psychiatric partial hospitalization programs for the seriously mentally ill, throughout San Diego and in Imperial County. In addition, the company settled its dispute with its former hospital affiliate Harbor View Medical Center. As part of the settlement, the company will assume the operation of two Harbor View facilities and plans to begin operating them within the next 15 days. Operation of a partial hospitalization program has already commenced on the campus of Villa View Hospital. In addition, plans call for the commencement of three additional San Diego facilities within the near future.
 The dispute with Harbor View arose in May 1993, out of the Hospital's termination, without cause, of its Agreement with the company. "While this unfortunate incident momentarily interrupted our growth cycle, we have gained the affiliation of two community not-for- profit organizations whose strong commitment to providing mental health care to persons with a serious mental illness will serve the San Diego community well," noted Allen Tepper, chief executive officer. "I anticipate that we will be operating at our fourth quarter 1993 levels in San Diego by the beginning of this current fiscal year's third quarter," Tepper continued, "and be able to resume the favorable earnings growth record we established within the same time frame."
 PMR Corp. is a San Diego-based company which currently manages 22 psychiatric partial hospitalization facilities in affiliation with acute care hospitals in California, Arizona, Indiana and Colorado, and provides psychiatric home health care services in six major markets.
