MELBOURNE, FL--(Marketwired - May 17, 2013) - First Choice Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (
"We are extremely pleased with our 2013 first quarter financial and operational results," stated Chris Romandetti, CEO of First Choice Healthcare. "Unlike many other healthcare business models, ours is designed to offer a more synergistic and profitable medical service mix. While we have increased this quarter's revenue by $187,207, or 15 percent, our EBITDA demonstrated a significant gain of $233,178, or 475 percent. These continued gains point to our ability to increase margins as our revenues continue to grow."
Additional accomplishments include the signing of two additional Orthopedic Surgeons and two Physician Assistants. "Signing four Clinicians continues to validate the FCMG model and Center of Excellence retail platform," stated Romandetti. "We remain cautiously optimistic that by year-end we will complement our Center of Excellence with two additional Orthopedic Surgeons and one Neurosurgeon. As we move forward with our expansion plan, we're investigating potential locations for our next Multi-Specialty Center of Excellence. Our focus is to identify geographic areas with high patient and physician benefit and the greatest leverage for our unique business model."
