Net revenue for the fourth quarter totaled $633.0 million, a decrease of 2.2%, compared to $647.5 million in the prior year quarter. Acute care revenue for the fourth quarter increased $23.0 million or 4.9% compared to the prior year quarter, while premium revenue at Health Choice, the Company’s Medicaid and Medicare managed health plan, decreased $37.5 million or 21.2% compared to the prior year quarter, as a result of an Arizona state mandated reduction in certain Medicaid enrollees, along with capitation rate reductions implemented by the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (“AHCCCS”).

Net earnings from continuing operations for the fourth quarter totaled $3.0 million, compared to $4.9 million in the prior year quarter.

In connection with the dividend and related option re-pricing, results for the fourth quarter include stock-based and other compensation totaling $3.6 million and $2.0 million, respectively. In addition, the fourth quarter includes $1.7 million in start-up costs associated with the expansion of the Company's St. Joseph Medical Center campus into the Heights community of Houston, Texas.
