MELBOURNE, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/17/17 -- First Choice Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: FCHS) ("FCHS," "First Choice" or the "Company"), one of the nation's only non-physician-owned, publicly traded healthcare services companies focused on the delivery of total musculoskeletal solutions with an emphasis on Orthopaedics and spine care, today announced that the Company has engaged international IR specialists MZ Group to lead a new strategic investor relations and financial communications program.
First Choice welcomes its partnership with MZ Group, the largest independent IR firm in the world. Over the course of the next several weeks, MZ Group will work closely with First Choice management to develop and execute a comprehensive capital markets strategy designed to increase the company's visibility amongst investors. This structured campaign will be augmented by the company's recent business success, evidenced by the rapidly growing Average Patient Value (APV) and accompanying revenue growth.
First Choice provides a fully integrated, non-physician-owned, healthcare delivery platform. The clear value proposition, which guides patients through all facets of care, while allowing doctors to free themselves from the hassle of private practice administration, has been a key driver behind the continued revenue growth.
President of MZ Group North America, Ted Haberfield commented, "MZ Group is excited to have the opportunity to partner with a healthcare visionary like First Choice. After completing comprehensive due diligence, we're convinced that First Choice is at an inflection point regarding market awareness, market traction, and market share growth.

This profitable, scalable growth trajectory creates a compelling story to share with the investment community. We are proud to be working with First Choice and feel the company fits well into our portfolio of partner companies."
