“If you look at a graph of what ancillary care spend looks like between 1980 and today, ancillary care spend in 1980 was roughly 25% of the overall healthcare spend at that point in time in the nation, today it represents north of 30% which makes it a nearly $600 billion market for services. It is taking a larger share of the pie and is expected to do so over time. For us we feel like we are uniquely positioned in the space. We are not aware of another business similar to ours...” - Steven J. Armond (XSI) (Interview published April 18, 2008)

American CareSource Holdings President & CEO, David S. Boone, Named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year(R) 2009 Award Winner in Southwest Area- North

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - July 06, 2009) -

American CareSource Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANCI) today announced that David S. Boone, its President and Chief Executive Officer, received the prestigious and coveted Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2009 Award in the health services category in Southwest Area- North. According to Ernst & Young LLP, the award recognizes the country's outstanding entrepreneurs who are building and leading dynamic, growing businesses. Mr. Boone was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a gala event at the Majestic Theater in Dallas, Texas, on June 27.

"This is truly an award for our entire company, not any one individual," said Mr. Boone. "This accomplishment is a reflection of the quality people that comprise American CareSource, our outstanding leadership team, and the culture we are creating. Most importantly, it is a direct result of the passion all of us have towards the goal of making health care more affordable and changing the health care industry for the better."

As President and Chief Executive Officer beginning in 2007, David Boone brought external credibility, passion, and a vision for the future to American CareSource. Borrowing on his health plan development past, his strategy execution experience, and his belief that analysis and analytics are important to the success of a company, Mr. Boone transformed American CareSource into a thriving, publicly traded company that topped the NASDAQ Capital Market performance charts in 2008.

Mr. Boone's core belief is that successful companies must have the right culture. At American CareSource Mr. Boone created an environment where every staff member believes in what the Company is doing -- saving the consumer money and changing the health care landscape. With his carefully cultivated management team -- the foundation of the Company's future success -- Mr. Boone's vision of the future now focuses on continuing American CareSource's rapid growth and further expanding its profitability and cash flow as the business scales.

The Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Awards celebrate their 23rd anniversary this year. The program honors entrepreneurs who have demonstrated exceptionality in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.

"We are proud to recognize the achievements of David Boone," said Chris Abston, Ernst & Young LLP Entrepreneur Of The Year Program Director for Southwest Area- North. "Winners of the Entrepreneur Of The Year Award build leading businesses and contribute significantly to the strength of our region's economy. Their success helps our area grow stronger."

As a Southwest Area- North award winner, Mr. Boone is now eligible for consideration for the Ernst & Young LLP Entrepreneur Of The Year 2009 national program. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the overall national Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award winner, will be announced at the annual awards gala in Palm Springs, California on November 14, 2009. The awards are the culminating event of the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum, the nation's most prestigious gathering of high-growth, market-leading companies.
