PYXIS ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL GROUP AGREEMENTS

 SAN DIEGO, Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Pyxis Corp. (NASDAQ-NMS: PYXS), a provider of automated point-of-use medication and supply systems, has signed three-year sole-source purchasing agreements with five leading hospital groups, Ronald Taylor, Pyxis president and chief executive officer, announced today.
 Four of the hospital groups, Hospital Services Corporation of America, Purchase Connection, MedEcon Services Inc. and Amerinet Inc. signed agreements with Pyxis in 1993. An agreement with Shared Services for Southern Hospitals Inc. was signed in December 1992.
 In total, the alliances announced today represent approximately 3,500 hospitals of all sizes, with approximately 480,000 in-patient beds. Many of the hospitals represented by the five groups are also affiliated with other purchasing groups already teamed with Pyxis.
 Agreements with hospital purchasing groups outline terms and conditions, including pricing, for acquisition of Pyxis systems by member hospitals. Pyxis has now signed agreements with 11 hospital purchasing groups.
 Pyxis' management considers group agreements to be an important indicator of the increasing level of interest in Pyxis systems among hospital group members, and a key component of the company's marketing strategy.
 Pyxis designs, develops and manufactures advanced computer-based systems that automate the distribution, management and control of medications and supplies.
