Beijing, November 29, 2011 - Medical Care Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: MDCE), a children's health care service provider, today announced it has closed its third round of convertible note financing that to date has raised $752,500 for the Company.
This funding round came from private investors living in Hong Kong and totaled gross proceeds of $210,000. The Company will use the funds to address and provide for the retrofitting of sustainability objectives in its flagship children's health care center currently being constructed in Dongguan, China. Features being considered are motion sensor light switches, programmable thermostats, certified insulation, automatic hand dryers, recycling areas, low-E windows, tubular daylighting devices, dual flush systems and low-flow faucets. Management believes implementing these initiatives will not only help reduce operation costs in the long run but also provide an environment that is comfortable, safe and productive.
"We consider this funding a strong endorsement of Medical Care Technologies Inc.'s unique focus on children's health care in China and to ultimately deliver the best facility possible," stated Ning Wu, Chief Executive Officer of Medical Care Technologies Inc. "We are targeting an area of high unmet health care need in China that fits well with our investors' investment philosophy."
"Designing our kid's health care center to include sustainability features emphasizes our commitment to environmentally friendly efforts," stated Luis Kuo, Chief Operations Officer of Medical Care Technologies Inc. "Our decision to adopt this approach during the construction process supports our commitment to environmental stewardship and conservation, and results in an optimal balance of cost, environmental, societal, and human benefits while meeting the mission and function of our kid's health care facility. We are thinking for the future and we will be ready to provide services in a manner that will have real, calculable benefits for our children, environment and our community."
The facility is scheduled to open in early 2012.
