MedX Health Corp. (“MedX”) (TSX-V:MDX) announces that it has partnered
with SANITAS, a specialist in healthcare and well-being services in
Spain, to conduct a skin cancer screening initiative. According to
recent studies, Spain, with its warm and sunny climate has experienced a
50% increase in skin cancer rates over the last decade. It is the most
common form of cancer in women between the age of 25 and 29, followed by
breast cancer, and the most common in men between the age of 30 and 35,
ahead of lung and colon cancer.

MedX, with its Spanish distributor (OncoTech), has partnered with
SANITAS, who will target twelve of SANITAS’s multi-national company
customers, with up to 3,000 patient scans to be taken using MedX’s
DermSecure™, to assess the benefits of such an initiative to SANITAS,
its clients and the Spanish healthcare system. Upon completion, SANITAS
will consider a significant expansion of this program. Dr. Miguel Marine
Blanco, Director of Strategic Alliances for SANITAS commented, “With the
increase in skin cancer rates in Spain we felt being able to offer our
members skin cancer screening with the best screening technology
available would be well received by our members.”

Sanitas offers its clients products and services adapted to people’s
real needs at each stage of their lives through an integral healthcare
model that includes: medical insurance, hospitals and multi-speciality
centres, well-being centres, dental clinics, other health services and
services for the care of the elderly. Sanitas forms part of Bupa, a
leading international healthcare company, which serves over 15.7 million
insurance policy holders, 15 million patients and 23,000 elderly people.

Mr. Frank Melendez, OncoTech’s President stated, “It is an honour to
work with SANITAS and their multi-national customers. They truly wish to
deliver the best possible care to their members which speaks to their
success. We are looking forward to the results of this pilot and to
further expand this program in the future.”
