Alliance Medical Names Two New Board Members

PHOENIX -- Alliance Medical Corporation, a leading reprocessor of single-use medical devices (SUDs),

announced today the appointment of two new members to the company's board of

directors: John B. Grotting, former chairman, president and CEO of Bridge

Medical Incorporated; and Matthew P. Marshall, former senior vice president,

HBOC Division of McKesson Corporation.

"The addition of John and Matthew to our board will bring fresh perspectives

that will enhance Alliance's strategic positioning, new partnership

opportunities and product-line expansions," says Alliance CEO Rick Ferreira.

"Their combined industry knowledge, expertise and relationships in the

medical device industry are valuable assets for Alliance, its customers and

the reprocessing industry at large. We are confident that they will assist

us in further promoting the concept, benefits and safety of medical device

reprocessing and its ability to help hospitals save significant dollars that

can be re-allocated to improving patient care."

Grotting has most recently served as chairman, president and CEO of Bridge

Medical Inc., a software and IT company focused on eliminating preventable

medication, lab specimen and blood transfusion errors in hospitals. At

Bridge Medical, Grotting prompted a financial turnaround after successfully

raising more than $55 million in venture capital; repositioned the company;

recruited a new, extremely effective management team and board of directors;

and established five strategic corporate partnerships. Previously, Grotting

served in top management positions at several prestigious healthcare

organizations, including Allina Health Systems, systems VP; HealthSpan

Corporation, operations officer; Health One Corporation, executive VP and

COO; Legacy Health System, acting president/CEO; and HealthLink, president

and CEO.

With a notable 17-year career in the healthcare industry prior to his recent

retirement, Marshall most currently served as senior vice president at the

HBOC Division of McKesson Corporation, a leading healthcare supply

management and information solutions company. He was responsible for a team

of 12 vice presidents, 27 managers, and more than 500 sales and sales

support employees. Under his leadership, in 2001, his division generated

$108 million in new software sales, a 95 percent increase over the previous

year, as well as the overachievement of the 2002 sales plan, through Q2,

with $152 million in new software sales.

Alliance Medical Corporation is a leading reprocessor of specific single-use

medical devices (SUDs). Alliance has safely reprocessed more than 7 million

SUDs, saving hospitals and surgery centers in excess of $100 million. The

company's services focus on reducing supply chain costs of hospitals and

surgery centers suffering from shrinking reimbursements and increasing

costs. Alliance's unique AIM (Assessment, Implementation and Management)

program uses clinical implementation teams to provide facilities with the

tools needed to maximize their savings from reprocessing.
