Rich Hallworth

Good morning. Welcome to our Q3 2010 earnings call. A copy of our press release addressing our third quarter results can be found on our website, www.asgr.com. After my opening remarks I’ll ask Mike Taylor to more specifically discuss our financial performance for the quarter.

Overall, I am pleased with our performance in the third quarter. Our contract portfolio continues to produce margins above our internal expectations. Our performance to date has given us the confidence to reaffirm our EBITDA guidance and again increase our full-year earnings per share guidance.

During the quarter our very strong contract performance was again tempered by adverse medical malpractice development. (Inaudible) industry, THS renders millions of patient encounters every year in a very challenging physical environment. We are proud of the quality of care our 5000 caring professionals render and are disappointed when there is an unfortunate even, which causes patient harm.
