MARBLEHEAD, Mass.--HCPro today announced its fifth acquisition of 2005 with the purchase of four healthcare newsletters from The Business Word, Inc., a Centennial, CO-based publisher. The acquisition broadens HCPro's reach to healthcare marketing professionals and the healthcare executive-level suite, also known as the C-Suite.

This acquisition follows HCPro's acquisition in May of five monthly newsletters and four companion email newsletters targeting the Healthcare C-Suite from COR Health of Santa Barbara, CA.

"The Business Word acquisition expands on the platform created by the COR Health deal," explained HCPro President/CEO Bruce Guzowski. "We are committed to the healthcare C-Suite and we will continue to look for other acquisition and partnering opportunities in this area."

The subscription newsletters are:

Three of the four newsletters are read by marketing/public relations/business development professionals. Two of the newsletters count C-Suite among their readership. Additionally, the Hospital Materials Management newsletter is aimed at materials managers and vice presidents, directors, and managers of purchasing, creating a new publishing market for HCPro.

"I'm pleased that HCPro, through its acquisition of these publications, is making a strong commitment to serve the needs of top decision-makers in hospitals," said The Business Word's Chairman, Donald E.L. Johnson.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
