Important Legal Information. Certain statements contained in this release are based on current management expectations and are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and are intended to qualify for the safe harbor protections from liability provided by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Numerous factors exist which may cause results to differ from these expectations. Many of the factors that will determine LifePoint’s future results are beyond LifePoint’s ability to control or predict with accuracy. Such forward-looking statements reflect the current expectations and beliefs of the management of LifePoint, are not guarantees of performance and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that could cause actual results to differ from those described in the forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements may also be subject to other risk factors and uncertainties, including without limitation: (i) the effect and implementation of healthcare reform legislation and other changes in government programs including efforts to reduce healthcare expenditures; (ii) reductions in Medicare or Medicaid payments, whether driven by budget deficits, programmatic changes or otherwise; (iii) reductions in revenues from commercial payors, whether as a change in our revenue mix, reduction in commercial rates or otherwise;(iv) LifePoint’s ability to acquire hospitals on favorable terms, the business risks associated with acquiring additional hospitals and the uncertainty in operating and integrating such hospitals;(v) the ongoing, adverse effects from the recent economic recession including high rates of unemployment, which could intensify if credit conditions deteriorate; (vi) the failure of certain employers, or the closure of certain manufacturing and other facilities, especially in markets where LifePoint’s hospitals depend on a small number of local employers; (vii) the growth of uninsured and “patient due” accounts, and deterioration in the collectability of these accounts;(viii) whether our core strategies will result in anticipated operating results; (ix) whether our efforts to reduce the cost of providing healthcare while increasing the quality of care are successful; (x) the ability to attract, recruit and retain qualified physicians, nurses, medical technicians and other healthcare professionals; (xi) the loss of certain physicians in markets where such a loss can have a disproportionate impact on LifePoint’s hospitals; (xii) the increasingly stringent and complex legal and regulatory environment (and changing interpretations of applicable laws and regulations), increased legal and regulatory obligations and related enforcement activity, new obligations that providers must self-disclose violations, and the additional costs incurred in connection with efforts to comply with such laws and regulations; (xiii) competition from other hospitals and outpatient facilities providing services similar to those LifePoint offers and from physicians providing services in their offices that could be provided in LifePoint’s hospitals; (xiv) adverse events in states a large portion of LifePoint’s revenues are concentrated; (xv) any interruption of or restriction in LifePoint’s access to licensed information (and information technology systems) or failure in LifePoint’s ability to integrate changes to LifePoint’s existing information systems or information systems of acquired hospitals; (xvi) liabilities resulting from potential malpractice and related legal claims brought against LifePoint’s hospitals; and (xvii) those other risks and uncertainties described from time to time in LifePoint’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Therefore, LifePoint’s future results may differ materially from those described in this release. LifePoint undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, or to make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

(1) Continuing operations information includes the results of our same-hospital operations, but excludes the results of our hospitals that have been disposed.

(2) Management and investors use equivalent admissions as a general measure of combined inpatient and outpatient volume.  We compute equivalent admissions by multiplying admissions (inpatient volumes) by the outpatient factor (the sum of gross inpatient revenue and gross outpatient revenue and then dividing the resulting amount by gross inpatient revenue).  The equivalent admissions computation “equates” outpatient revenue to the volume measure (admissions) used to measure inpatient volume resulting in a general measure of combined inpatient and outpatient volume.

(3) Same-hospital information includes the results of our corporate office and the same 47 hospitals operated during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010.  Same-hospital information excludes the results of HighPoint Health System, which we acquired effective September 1, 2010, Clark Regional Medical Center, which we acquired effective May 1, 2010, and our hospitals that have previously been disposed.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as earnings before depreciation and amortization; interest expense, net; provision for income taxes; (income) loss from discontinued operations and net income attributable to noncontrolling interests.  LifePoint’s management and Board of Directors use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the Company’s operating performance and as a measure of performance for incentive compensation purposes.  LifePoint’s credit facilities use Adjusted EBITDA for certain financial covenants.  The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of performance used by some investors, equity analysts and others to make informed investment decisions.  In addition, multiples of current or projected Adjusted EBITDA are used to estimate current or prospective enterprise value.  Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance.  Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity.  Because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations, Adjusted EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

(1) Salaries and benefits, supplies and other operating expenses, as a percentage of Cash Revenues (a non-GAAP financial measure), present the impact on these ratios due to the adjustment of deducting the provision for doubtful accounts from reported revenues and results in these ratios being non-GAAP financial measures.  The Company’s management and Board of Directors finds this information useful to evaluate certain expense category trends without the influence of whether adjustments to revenues for uninsured accounts are recorded as revenue adjustments (charity care and uninsured discounts) or operating expenses (provision for doubtful accounts).  Thus, the expense category trends are generally analyzed as a percentage of Cash Revenues.  These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered alternatives to GAAP financial measures.  The Company’s management believes this supplemental information provides management and the users of its financial statements with useful information for period-to-period comparisons.  Investors are encouraged to use GAAP measures when evaluating the Company’s overall financial performance.
