                             REGISTRANT INFORMATION

Full name of registrant:  ORION HEALTHCORP, INC.
Former name if applicable:  SURGICARE, INC.

Address of principal executive office (Street and number):
1805 Old Alabama Road, Suite 350

City, state and zip code:  Roswell, GA  30076

                                     PART II
                             RULES 12b-25(b) AND (c)

If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense
and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should
be completed. (Check box if appropriate.)

(a) The reasons described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could
not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;

[X] (b) The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form
10-K, 10-KSB, Form 20-F, 11-K, Form N-SAR, or portion thereof will be filed on
or before the 15th calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the

thereof will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the
prescribed due date; and

(c) The accountant's statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has
been attached if applicable.

                                    PART III

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Forms 10-K, 10-KSB, 11-K, 20-F,
10-Q, 10-QSB, N-SAR or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be
filed within the prescribed time period. (Attach extra sheets if needed.)

On December 15, 2004, the Registrant (formerly known as SurgiCare, Inc.) (the
"Company") consummated its previously disclosed restructuring transactions,
which included issuances of new equity securities for cash and contribution of
outstanding debt, the acquisition of three new businesses and the restructuring
of its debt facilities. The Company also completed a one-for-ten reverse stock
split, created three new classes of common stock and changed its name. These
transactions, as well as other related matters, were previously described in the
Company's proxy statement dated September 10, 2004.

As a result of the complexity involved in accounting for the restructuring and
acquisition transactions, including the fact that the transactions are accounted
for as a "reverse" merger for accounting purposes, the audited consolidated
financial statements and annual report of the Company will not be completed in
accordance with the March 31, 2005 deadline.


                                     PART IV
                                OTHER INFORMATION

(1) Name and telephone number of person to contact in regard to this

                        Stephen H. Murdock (678) 832-1800
                      (Name) (Area Code) (Telephone Number)

(2) Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of
1940 during the preceding 12 months (or for such shorter) period that the
registrant was required to file such reports) been filed? If answer is no,
identify report(s) [X] Yes [ ] No

(3) Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from
the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the
earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?
[X] Yes [ ] No

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and
quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate
of the results cannot be made.

As a result of the previously disclosed restructuring transactions, which
include a "reverse" merger for accounting purposes, the Company's results of
operations for the year ended December 31, 2004 will be significantly different
from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year. Specifically, the
Company acquired Integrated Physician Solutions, Inc. ("IPS") in the acquisition
transactions. In light of the terms of the restructurings and the acquisition
transactions, IPS was considered the accounting acquirer and the historical
financial statements of IPS will be treated as the financial statements of the
Company from and after the date of the transactions. While the Company's audited
consolidated financial statements are not yet complete, the Company estimates
that, on a pro forma basis, it will report net revenues of approximately $36
million and a net loss of approximately $12 million for the year ended December
31, 2004.
