"RegionalCare is well-positioned for future growth and I look forward to building on its success," said Mr. Wallace. "I am excited about taking on this new role and collaborating with my new colleagues to deliver the high quality care and compassionate service that RegionalCare's hospital patients have come to expect."

Mr. Rash added, "On behalf of RegionalCare's Board of Directors and the entire RegionalCare team, I'd like to thank John for his many contributions and dedication to the Company.  Three years ago, John joined me in launching RegionalCare and many of our significant operational and financial successes have come under his leadership.  We wish John the very best as he returns to his other business endeavors."
