    VANCOUVER, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - CRH Medical Corporation (CRM:TSX-V) announced
today that due to patient demand in Las Vegas it recently hired Dr. Ronald
Rosen as the second Physician in its Center for Colorectal Health. By adding a
second physician, the Company will continue to increase the revenue of an
existing Center, without incurring the incremental operating expenses

    CRH Medical believes over time this can be an excellent source of growth,
while also pursuing its strategy of opening new Centers in additional cities.
A Board-Certified Surgeon, Ronald G. Rosen, MD, FACS is a fellow of the
American College of Surgeons. Dr. Rosen has more than 20 years of experience
in general surgery and has been in private practice for thirteen years in Las
Vegas.
    Commenting on the appointment of Dr. Rosen, Edward Wright CEO of CRH
Medical stated, "Our strategy is to add additional physicians to our Centers
as dictated by continuous growth in patient appointments. We are excited about
the addition of Dr. Rosen as it demonstrates the scalability of our Centers
and is further evidence that our strategy and tactics to create awareness for
our Centers is working."
