Date:8/10/2009

SEATTLE, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- REM Medical Corporation, a leader in innovative fatigue management solutions for corporations, today announced that U.S. HealthWorks, the second largest operator of occupational health centers in the United States and one of the nation's leading providers of physical exams for Department of Transportation licensing, has entered into an exclusive agreement with REM Medical to provide sleep apnea solutions to employer groups on a national basis through its network of 123 medical centers.

REM Medical and U.S. HealthWorks will collaborate to provide comprehensive sleep apnea screening, diagnostic, physician evaluation, treatment and compliance follow-up for all drivers that access the sleep apnea program through their employers.

"REM Medical has developed an innovative service delivery program that has been implemented with Gordon Trucking Inc., a major long haul transportation company," said Joe Mallas, Executive Vice President of Operations for U.S. HealthWorks. "We are excited to be partnering with an organization of leading sleep physicians who share our vision of providing high quality, cost-effective solutions to the transportation sector."

"Sleep apnea is a growing concern among regulators and employers," said Andrew Parker, MD, Senior Vice President of Northwest Regional Operations for U.S. HealthWorks. "By providing additional sleep apnea screening services, we can ensure prompt care to get drivers safely back on the road within days. For employers, this is a cost-effective and feasible strategy to address the growing cost and dangers of drivers who are drowsy due to sleep apnea."

"By providing easy access to care, we can be less disruptive to the drivers and employers and more responsive to their need for cost-effective diagnosis and treatment," said Russell Benaroya, CEO of REM Medical. "Our program combines the leadership of U.S. HealthWorks in occupational medicine services and our physician leadership in sleep medicine to meet the needs of customers."
