PREMIER ANESTHESIA TO ESTABLISH PAIN TREATMENT CENTER IN TEXAS HOSPITAL; ALSO SIGNS FIRST SERVICE CONTRACT IN NEW MEXICO

 ATLANTA, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Premier Anesthesia, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRAN), today announced the signing of two new contracts with separate Hospital Corporation of America (NYSE: HCA) facilities: a two- year fee-for-service anesthesia contract and a five-year contract to establish and manage a pain treatment center in a current anesthesia client hospital.
 "After a slow first half, but a strong third quarter of new contract activity, the fact that we've just signed our third contract this month is a very encouraging trend," said Richard Jackson, chairman of the board and CEO. "The pain treatment center agreement will create our third center in a current client hospital. This demonstrates the synergy between our anesthesia services provided to hospitals and our pain management operations."
 The pain treatment center will be owned by the HCA Rio Grande Regional Hospital in McAllen, Texas. The hospital will pay a management fee to Premier Anesthesia during the next five years.
 Separately, Premier reached an agreement to provide anesthesia services starting during January 1994, to HCA Guadalupe Medical Center in Carlsbad, N.M. The medical center is a 138-bed facility averaging 3,000 surgical cases per year.
 Premier Anesthesia, the nation's leading multi-state provider of contract anesthesiology services, now has 46 contracts in 22 states.
