Northstar Welcomes New Officer with Outstanding Reputation in Healthcare 
HOUSTON, Texas, Jan. 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Northstar Healthcare Inc. (TSX:NHC) today 
announced that Adam Lefton, former Vice President of Brand Development for 
Cancer Treatment Centers of America, has joined Northstar as its new Chief 
Marketing Officer. Mr. Lefton has replaced Interim CMO, Jin Pyun, who will 
remain on Northstar's board of directors. 
As a senior executive at Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Mr. Lefton 
oversaw the company's highly successful digital direct-to-consumer marketing 
programs. During his ten-year tenure, Cancer Treatment Centers of America 
grew from two regional cancer treatment centers into a national provider of 
cancer care. Mr. Lefton will be responsible for expanding Northstar's brand 
through focused direct-to-consumer marketing. 
Dr. Donald Kramer, Northstar's CEO, welcomed Mr. Lefton and explained how Mr. 
Lefton's hiring fits into Northstar's strategic plans: "Following my purchase 
of a controlling interest in Northstar Healthcare Inc. two years ago, I 
brought in new management to help me strengthen Northstar's operational 
efficiency and create Northstar's strategic vision. Northstar's recent 
positive results are the direct result of these developments, and when 
combined with Northstar's rigorous testing of new programs and business models 
at our existing facilities, the company is now positioned for a broader 
rollout of those programs. By hiring Mr. Lefton, one of the healthcare 
arena's most respected marketing executives, Northstar gains critical skills 
to execute upon its strategy. Based on his enormous contributions at Cancer 
Treatment Centers of America, I believe that Mr. Lefton's expertise in 
direct-to-consumer marketing will transform Northstar from an operator of 
Texas surgical centers into a nationally recognized provider of healthcare 
"I'm excited to join this entrepreneurial company that I believe is primed for 
rapid expansion," said Mr. Lefton. Northstar has an innovative strategy which 
differentiates it from its competition. I am looking forward to working with 
Dr. Kramer and the management team to aggressively pursue market 
Prior to his time at Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Mr. Lefton help lead 
the growth of the McGraw-Hill Construction Information Group, first as Chief 
Financial Officer and then as Vice President of Publishing Operations. 
Mr. Lefton earned his B.A. degree from SUNY Albany, as well as an M.B.A. 
(Finance) from Georgia State University - J. Mack Robinson College of Business.
