CROSS  COUNTRY  REPORTS  4TH  QUARTER  RESULTS;  REVENUES  UP 48%;  INCOME  FROM
CONTINUING OPERATIONS UP 235%

BOCA RATON,  FL, Feb. 15 -- Cross Country,  Inc.  (Nasdaq:  CCRN) today reported
revenue of $144.3  million for the three  months ended  December  31,  2001,  an
increase of 48% over  revenue of $97.2  million for the same period in the prior
year. Income from continuing  operations for the three months ended December 31,
2001 was $6.5  million,  or $0.21 per  diluted  share  (EPS),  compared  to $1.9
million or $0.08 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2000.
Including the effects of discontinued operations and the extraordinary loss from
the  early  extinguishment  of debt  resulting  from  funds  received  in  Cross
Country's  initial  public  offering in October 2001,  net income for the fourth
quarter of 2001 was $2.1  million or $0.07 per diluted  share.  Earnings  before
interest,   taxes,   depreciation,   amortization  and  non-recurring   indirect
transaction  costs  (EBITDA) for the three  months  ended  December 31, 2001 was
$17.1  million  compared to $12.3 million for the same period in the prior year,
an increase of 39%. The quarter was favorably  impacted  primarily by the strong
results  contributed by the Company's  Healthcare  Staffing segment coupled with

reduced  interest  expense as a result of the  paydown of  approximately  $134.5
million in debt, and a reduction in the company's effective corporate income tax
rate.

"We are very  pleased  with the  strength  of our fourth  quarter  and full year
results," said Joseph A. Boshart,  President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Each
of our mature  businesses  broke revenue records for the year and are positioned
to  continue  this growth into 2002.  Our growth  continues  to be driven by the
strong results  generated by our travel staffing  business,  but is augmented by
our complementary businesses.  The strong recognition of the Cross Country brand
and our quality of customer service continue to make our businesses  successful.
Additionally,  our balance sheet is financially strong, sound and structured for
flexibility."

For the year ended December 31, 2001,  Cross Country  reported revenue of $500.5
million,  an increase of 36% over the same period in the prior year. Income from
continuing operations and its associated diluted EPS for the year ended December
31,  2001 were $13.7  million  and $0.54  compared  to $6.7  million  and $0.29,
respectively,  for the year ended  December 31,  2000.  EBITDA for the full year
2001 was $56.2  million  compared  to $45.1  million  for the same period in the
prior year, an increase of 24%.

HEALTHCARE STAFFING
In the fourth  quarter,  Cross  Country's  Healthcare  Staffing  segment,  which
comprises  travel  staffing,  clinical  research  trials  staffing  and per diem
staffing,  had its strongest quarter of 2001. Revenue for the three months ended
December 2001 was $134.5 million, an increase

of 45% over the same period in the prior year. This growth was driven  primarily
by increased  average hourly bill rates in all businesses,  increased numbers of
field employees in both the travel nursing and allied health staffing as well as
revenue generated by the acquisition of ClinForce in March,  2001.  Contribution
income, defined as earnings before interest, taxes,  depreciation,  amortization
and corporate expenses not specifically  identified to a reporting segment,  for
the three months ended December 31, 2001 was $21.8  million,  an increase of 38%
over the same period in the prior year.  This  growth was  primarily  due to the
same factors that drove revenue growth,  but partially  offset by an increase in
field staff compensation and professional liability expense.

For the year ended December 31, 2001 revenue was $464.3 million,  an increase of
32% over the same  period in the prior  year and  contribution  income was $73.2
million compared to $61.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2000.

OTHER HUMAN CAPITAL MANAGEMENT SERVICES
Cross Country's Other Human Capital Management Services segment, which comprises
the education and training, healthcare consulting services, physician search and
resource  management  services,  generated revenue of $9.8 million for the three
months ended  December 31, 2001, an increase of 113% over the same period in the
prior year. This increase was driven primarily by the business  generated by the
Heritage  Professional  Education LLC and Gill/Balsano  acquisitions in December
2000 and May 2001, respectively.  Contribution income for the three months ended
December  31, 2001 was $0.1  million,  an increase of $0.1 million over the same
period in the prior year, was driven primarily by the factors that drove revenue
growth and  partially  offset by  expenditures  associated  with the start-up of
E-staff, Cross Country's new web-enabled scheduling technology,  and the effects
of the slowing economy on the search business.

For the year ended December 31, 2001, revenue was $36.2 million,  an increase of
115% over the same  period in the prior  year and  contribution  income was $3.6
million compared to $1.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2000.

EXPECTATIONS FOR 2002 
The following statements are based on current expectations. These statements are
forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially.

With respect to Cross  Country's  financial  targets for the full year 2002, the
company is projecting  revenue to be between $610 and $640 million and EBITDA to
be between $67 and $70 million.  First  quarter 2002 earnings are expected to be
in the  range of  $0.19  to  $0.20  per  diluted  share  and  grow  sequentially
thereafter  aggregating  to a range of $0.98 to $1.02 per diluted  share for the
full  year  2002.  EPS  estimates  include  the  effect of the  adoption  of the
Statement of Financial  Accounting  Standard (SFAS) No. 142, "Goodwill and Other
Intangible  Assets",  issued by the Financial  Accounting  Standards  Board. The
effect of SFAS No.  142 is  projected  to have a $0.22  per share  impact on the
Company's  full year 2002 EPS estimates  reducing  annual  pre-tax  amortization
expense from $14.2 million to $3.1 million.  It is Cross Country's  intention to
update its guidance quarterly.

</TABLE>



(a) Contribution  income is computed by the Company as  operating  income,  less
     unallocated  corporate  overhead.  Contribution  income is not a measure of
     financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles and is
     only used by management when assessing segment performance. 

(b) Defined as income before interest, income taxes, depreciation,  amortization
     and  non-recurring   indirect  transaction  costs.  EBITDA  should  not  be
     considered  a measure of financial  performance  under  generally  accepted
     accounting   principles.   Items  excluded  from  EBITDA  are   significant
     components in understanding and assessing financial performance.  EBITDA is
     a key measure used by  management  to evaluate our  operations  and provide
     useful  information  to  investors.  EBITDA  should  not be  considered  in
     isolation  or as an  alternative  to net income,  cash flows  generated  by
     operations, investing or financing activities, or other financial statement
     data presented in the  consolidated  financial  statements as indicators of
     financial  performance  or liquidity.  Because  EBITDA is not a measurement
     determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting  principles and
     is thus susceptible to varying calculations, EBITDA as presented may not be
     comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. 

(c) FTE's  represent  the average  number of contract  staffing  personnel  on a
     full-time equivalent basis.
