MedX Names Steve Guillen President and Chief Executive Officer



    Appointment Announced during Annual General Meeting of Shareholders

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 27 /CNW/ - MedX Health Corp. (TSXV: MDX) announced
the promotion of Steven T. Guillen to president and chief executive officer of
MedX Health. Guillen was named president and director in April, replacing Phil
Passy, MedX's founder, who passed away earlier this year. The announcement was
made during MedX's annual shareholders meeting held June 25th at The National
Club in Toronto.
    "In just a few short months, Steve has proven his leadership in driving
MedX to the next level," said Gary Van Nest, MedX's Chairman. "His ability to
rally the troops and bring a cohesive purpose to the company is evident. We
applaud the new direction Steve is taking the company and look forward to
strong growth in the next year."
    Prior to joining MedX, Guillen was chief executive officer of OXIS
International, Inc. (OTC BB:OXIS.OB), where he was recruited to lead, and turn
around, an asset-rich publicly traded company with products in diagnostics,
therapeutics, and nutraceuticals. He directed commercial strategy and grew
revenues from $2 million to $6 million in his first year. He also directed an
acquisition and the subsequent merger of the two organizations, including the
relocation of operations and integration of manufacturing, finance, R&D, and
sales & marketing into one site, thereby improving both revenues and
profitability. Prior to that, Guillen was, for eight years, vice president of
Sales & Marketing for Amarin Pharmaceuticals, based in Mill Valley,
California, and Athena Diagnostics, based in Boston, Massachusetts. Prior to
that, he had a number of different roles of increasing responsibility within
Merck & Co, before he was recruited to establish the initial commercial
organization for Athena Neurosciences, as their first director of Sales.
    "The global vision for MedX as the worldwide leader in light technology
is clear," said Mr. Guillen. "We plan to build upon our success in bringing
relief of symptoms in a non-pharmacologic manner in the rehabilitation market
through key partnerships, acquisitions, strong patent protection as well as
developing and commercializing advanced products in the dental and wound-care
markets that will position us to increase revenue in new markets."
