Forward Looking Statements
With respect to information accessible through this page which was prepared by the Company, you should be aware that such information may contain forward looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, which are intended to be covered by the safe harbors created thereby. These forward-looking statements include all statements that are not historical statements of fact and those statements regarding the Company's intent, belief or expectations. Do not rely on any forward-looking statements as such statements are subject to numerous factors, risks and uncertainties that could cause the Company's actual outcomes, results, performance or achievements to be materially different from those projected. These factors, risks and uncertainties include, among others, the Company's high degree of leverage; the Company's ability to incur substantially more debt; operating and financial restrictions in the Company's debt agreements; the Company's ability to successfully implement its business strategies; the Company's ability to successfully achieve its acquisition strategy by continuously acquiring hospitals and related health care providers and to integrate any future acquisitions made without disrupting ongoing operations; the highly competitive nature of the health care business which may reduce patient volume or profitability; possible changes in the Medicare and Medicaid programs that may limit reimbursement to health care providers and insurers; changes in Federal, state or local regulation affecting the health care industry; the possible enactment of Federal or state health care reform; the ability to attract and retain qualified management and personnel, including physicians and nurses; claims and legal actions relating to professional liabilities or other matters exceeding the scope of the Company's liability coverage; changes in accounting practices; changes in general economic conditions; the ability to enter into managed care provider and other payer arrangements on acceptable terms; the availability and terms of capital to fund the expansion of the Company's business; the timeliness of reimbursement payments received under government programs; the potential adverse impact of known and unknown government investigations; those factors, risks and uncertainties detailed in the Company's public filings from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including, among others, the Company's annual reports on Form 10-K and its quarterly reports on Form 10-Q; and those factors, risks and uncertainties identified in the specific information accessed through this page.
Although the Company believes that the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements contained in the specific, Company-prepared information accessed through this page and web site were reasonable, any of these assumptions could prove to be inaccurate, and, therefore, there can be no assurance that the forward-looking statements included in the specific information accessed will prove to be accurate. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the forward-looking statements included herein, you should not regard the inclusion of such information as a representation by the Company that its objectives and plans anticipated by the forward-looking statements will occur or be achieved, or if any of them do, what impact they will have on the Company's results of operations and financial condition.
