    WESTPORT, Conn., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- While other work/life service
 providers are scaling back, LifeCare(R) Inc. is expanding its facilities and
 capabilities to ensure optimum support of its clients' needs. The company
 today announced it has opened a new client care center in Shelton,
 Connecticut, to house its growing ranks of highly trained specialists. The
 expansion enables the company to continue to provide even greater levels of
 client care, offering employees personalized assistance for all of their life
 events.
     Equipped with innovative technology, the new 50,000 square foot facility
 doubles LifeCare's capacity and provides the scalability and space needed to
 support the company's extraordinary growth rate. As a result, LifeCare is well
 positioned to continue leading the industry in delivering "best in class"
 services that will meet the changing needs of employers and employees both
 today and in the future.
     At the core of LifeCare's services is a staff of highly qualified
 specialists who consult with employees about their work/life needs as well as
 furnish personalized, pre-qualified referrals to local and national providers
 and resources. Unlike many referral agencies that hire generalists to handle
 any and every type of request, LifeCare specialists have backgrounds and
 extensive training in specific areas of expertise, such as child development,
 adoption, special education or gerontology. By focusing on particular
 disciplines, LifeCare specialists are able to provide employees with the
 reliable, expert advice and knowledge they need.
     "The opening of the new client care center demonstrates LifeCare's
 commitment not only to our clients but to our specialists," said Peter G.
 Burki, CEO of LifeCare Inc." The new facility enhances telephonic access to
 our services and reinforces our commitment to delivering high quality,
 personalized service through a fully integrated telephone and Web service
 delivery model."
     LifeCare continues to pioneer the development of new services and the
 implementation of advanced technology to provide employers with even more cost
 effective and customized ways of offering Life Event Management(SM) Services
 to their employees. LifeCare offers a continuum of care-timely education,
 referrals, and counseling services based on life events, from prenatal to
 geriatrics and beyond. LifeCare enables employers to provide employees with a
 one-stop solution to more effectively manage their day-to-day challenges at
 home and at work.
