UHS has informed us that Rancho Springs Medical Center and Inland Valley Medical Center remain fully committed to providing high-quality healthcare to their patients and the communities they serve. UHS therefore intends to work expeditiously and collaboratively with both CMS and CDPH in an effort to resolve these matters although there can be no assurance they will be able to do so. Failure to resolve these matters could have a material adverse effect on UHS and, in turn, us. While the base rentals on Inland Valley are guaranteed by UHS through the end of the existing lease term (December, 2011), should this matter adversely impact the future revenues and/or operating results of SWHCS, the future bonus rental earned by us on Inland Valley, and the underlying value of the property, may be materially adversely impacted. Bonus rental revenue earned by us from Inland Valley amounted to $1.1 million during the year ended December 31, 2009.
