Alliance HealthCare Services, Inc. Announces Changes To Executive Leadership Team

Alliance HealthCare Services, Inc. (NYSE:AIQ), a leading national provider of outpatient diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy services, today announced that Paul S. Viviano, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of the company, has resigned to be effective in June, 2012. Larry C. Buckelew, a company director since 2009, including serving as a member of the Audit Committee and the Compensation Committee, has been named chairman of the board and interim chief executive officer, to be effective immediately upon Mr. Viviano’s departure. Mr. Viviano is leaving the company to accept the position of associate vice chancellor for health sciences at the University of California, San Diego and chief executive officer of the UCSD Health System. Following his departure from Alliance, Mr. Viviano will continue to serve as a director of the company. Alliance also announced that Michael J. Shea has joined the company as chief operating officer effective June 4, 2012. In an unrelated development, Richard Hall has submitted his resignation as president of Alliance Oncology in order to accept a position as chief executive officer of a non-competing, New York-based company.

Mr. Buckelew has an extensive background as a healthcare director and executive. Mr. Buckelew served as president and chief executive officer of Gambro Healthcare, Inc. from November 2000 through October 2005. During this time period Gambro had more than $2 billion in annual revenues, 13,000 employees, and was ultimately purchased for approximately $3 billion. Prior to joining Gambro, Mr. Buckelew served in numerous executive and management positions, including positions with American Hospital Supply Corporation, Baxter International, Inc., Sunrise Medical, Inc., Teleflex, Inc., and Surgical Services, Inc.

As the new COO, Mr. Shea brings more than 30 years of healthcare industry business experience to Alliance, including senior executive roles in both private and public companies ranging from successful start-ups to established industry leaders. Prior to accepting this position, he was a senior vice president of operations at DaVita, Inc., a publicly held renal care company with more than $7 billion in revenues, operating 1800 dialysis clinics, and serving over 850 hospitals. Mr. Shea was responsible for DaVita operations in California, Nevada, and Arizona as well as being the senior executive in charge of DaVita’s Hospital Services Group. Prior to DaVita, he was the senior vice president of business development and marketing at TeamHealth, a publicly held outsourced physician services company that contracted with hospitals and physician groups, with revenues exceeding $1 billion annually. He holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Western Connecticut State University. Mr. Shea will report to Alliance’s chief executive officer.
