    WESTERVILLE, Ohio, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Progressive Medical, Inc., a
 managed care provider located in Central Ohio, has experienced an amazing
 amount of growth in the last year forcing the company to expand its walls.
     Progressive Medical is breaking ground, mid-summer to create an office
 complex that triples the size of the existing building.  The four story
 addition will be connected to the existing building and once the project is
 completed, June 2005, the new headquarters will have expanded to over 100,000
 square feet.
     Progressive Medical has acquired a significant amount of new business
 causing the company to grow out of their existing space.  This increased
 amount of growth is largely fueled by the number of new businesses that have
 joined the team and increased business from existing clients.  The company has
 grown from 135 employees a year ago to 216 and is expected to increase to well
 over 300 by next spring.
     "We're dramatically increasing in size, our revenue has doubled from 2002
 to 2003 and because of the continuous dedication the Progressive Medical team
 has to customer service, we can anticipate it will double again this year,"
 says David Bianconi, Progressive Medical's President and C.E.O.
     Progressive Medical has hired Meacham & Apel Architects of Dublin and
 Design Collective, Inc. of Columbus to design the building addition.  "We are
 amazed at what they are doing for us so far," said Bianconi, "they have helped
 to make this an exciting time for the entire company."
