HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2013) - Northstar Healthcare Inc. (TSX: NHC) today announced preliminary revenue results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 of approximately $7 million.

"I am proud to say that these revenues are the strongest we have seen at Northstar in almost five years," said Donald Kramer, chairman and CEO. "Our third quarter performance reaffirms our confidence that Northstar's direct to consumer marketing campaigns and physician contracting program will be successful revenue generation models in the outpatient surgical center industry. Although we do not have final third quarter numbers to report, we expect Northstar's growth to continue and for revenues to be significantly higher in the fourth quarter. The company has just invested heavily in the development of a direct-to-consumer spine campaign as a follow on to the ongoing successful podiatry campaign that has contributed significantly to our third quarter results. In addition, we are currently developing and will soon be launching a Dallas bariatric marketing campaign," said Dr. Kramer.

"Due to Northstar's recent business development activity, we will be issuing monthly financial updates through January 2014 in an effort to be highly transparent to our shareholders," stated Harry Fleming, Northstar's Chief Financial Officer.
