    Mar 27, 2013 10:53 AM | about stocks: OXYS

    OxySure® Systems, a medical device innovator of emergency oxygen solutions, has named Jeremy M. ("Jerry") Jones, former chairman and CEO of Apria Healthcare, as an independent director effective April 1, 2013.

    During his more than 35 years of experience in the healthcare industry, Jones has led healthcare industry coalition efforts; served two terms as chairman of the Health Industry Distributors Association (HIDA); was a board member of the National Association of Medical Equipment Services; and was founding chairman of the Home Oxygen Services Coalition. He received the Dr. Jonas Salk Memorial Mentor in Medicine Award from the March of Dimes, in recognition of his medical achievements and support of wellness programs aimed at the prevention of birth defects.

    Jones' prior experience also includes his founding of Homedco Group, Inc., a home healthcare services company he took public in 1991. Four years later, Jones led Homedco's merger into Apria Healthcare Group, Inc., which became the largest homecare service provider. Jones served the company as CEO and chairman from 1995 through 1998 when the company was sold to the Blackstone Group for $1.7 billion.

    "We are pleased to welcome Jerry to our board," Julian Ross, CEO of OxySure stated in the press release. "As we pursue our goal of providing OxySure as a standard safety item for all homes and businesses worldwide, I am convinced that Jerry's expansive medical and healthcare sector experience and product distribution knowledge, combined with his extensive network of industry associates will be invaluable to our company."

    Jones also currently serves as chairman of On Assignment, Inc. (NYSE:ASGN), a $1.3 billion healthcare and life sciences company focused on medical and technical staffing, and is a member of the board of CombiMatrix Corp. (NASDAQ:CBMX).
