Amedisys Announces New Director

Amedisys, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMED), one of America's leading home health and hospice care companies, announced today that Ms. Linda J. Hall has joined the Board. The Amedisys Board, assisted by a national executive search firm, conducted an extensive search for a qualified director to enhance the existing strength of our Board. As a result of that process, the Board identified and unanimously appointed Ms. Hall to our Board. Ms. Hall is the Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, and she works as a private consultant with several companies, including a number of companies in the healthcare industry. Her healthcare consulting clients have included Mayo Clinic, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Minnesota, Xylo Technologies and Children’s HeartLink.

Ms. Hall has significant management experience in the healthcare industry, including previously as the CEO of MinuteClinic (which was sold to CVS Pharmacy in 2006), the CEO of Accurate Home Care (a home-healthcare company serving chronically ill pediatric patients), and as an interim executive at UnitedHealth Group, leading their corporate social responsibility initiative for AARP. In addition, her past management experience outside of healthcare includes serving as President of Ceridian Performance Partners and Vice President of Honeywell’s Worldwide Consumer Business Group.

Ms. Hall has substantial public company board experience. She currently serves on the board of directors of Investors Real Estate Trust, a diversified real estate investment trust which includes healthcare investments, where she serves on the compensation, nominating and governance and investment committees. Previously, she served on the boards of Health Fitness Corporation, from 2008 until its sale in 2010; August Technology, from 2002 until a merger in 2006; and MTS Systems Corporation, from 1995 to 2006, retiring due to a 10-year term limit. At MTS, she served as the lead director, the chair of the compensation committee and as a member of the audit committee. She also served as Chair, Vice-Chair and as a member of the Executive Committee of the Ninth District Federal Reserve Bank Board.
