ORLANDO, Fla., March 23 Pure HealthyBack, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of WellTek Incorporated (OTC Bulletin Board: WTKN), today announced the appointment of Gerry Dabkowski as Senior Vice President of Business Development. In the newly created position, Dabkowski is tasked with pursuing and managing Pure HealthyBack Program collaborations with health plans and large self-insured employer groups based throughout the United States.
The Pure HealthyBack Program is a patient-centric approach to healthcare delivery and true payment reform that places a keen focus on quality care, measurable health outcomes, and cost savings over the life of the patient, thus effectively managing the condition with long-term value in mind. Its viable non-surgical treatment helps patients resolve chronic neck and back pain - ailments that cost the U.S. healthcare system as much as $100 billion each year and afflict an estimated 80% of all adult Americans. The program is designed to provide care based on the needs of the patient, not the system - ultimately avoiding costly and unnecessary treatments and procedures, drastically cutting the costs of claims, improving patient satisfaction and quality of life, eliminating unnecessary spinal surgeries, and reducing utilization rates.
Dabkowski joins Pure HealthyBack after having served as Vice President of Corporate Accounts at Health Integrated from 2006 through 2009. From 1996 through 2005, he rose through the ranks at Accredo Health, Inc., beginning first as a Regional Sales Manager and ascending to Area Vice President of Managed Care, where he was responsible for organizing and directing managed care sales for the Company and its affiliates. Among other senior posts, he also served as Director of Physician Hospital Network Development at Healthcare USA, a managed care organization. Dabkowski graduated from the University of North Florida with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and earned his MBA from Jacksonville University.

Gerry brings our Company deep experience, influence and trusting relationships with many of the nation's leading insurers and healthcare institutions - all vital assets that we hope to benefit from as we move Pure HealthyBack forward. We are delighted to welcome him to our team."
