Parts of this announcement contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including the announcement of earnings for our fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2009, the filing of our Form 10-Q for the same period and compliance with the reporting and other requirements of our credit agreement. Although management believes that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, these assumptions are inherently subject to significant economic, regulatory and competitive uncertainties and contingencies that are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and are beyond our control including, but not limited to, enactment of changes in federal law that would limit physician hospital ownership.
