SunLink Health Systems, Inc. Amends Fiscal 2011 Annual Report On Form 10-K And Previously Filed Quarterly Reports On Form 10-Q

SunLink Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: SSY) today announced that it has amended its annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 and its quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2011, September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2011. The financial statements included in these reports were amended due to the requirement that Medicare and Medicaid incentives payments for the implementation of electronic health records (“EHR”) technology be accounted for using a gain contingency accounting model, not a grant accounting model previously used by SunLink for payments for the indicated fiscal periods ending prior to December 31, 2011. The amended annual and quarterly reports are available on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission website at www.sec.gov.

As previously announced, the restatement of financial statements did not affect the amount or the timing of past or future Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments. The change in accounting model for EHR incentive payments results in the incentive payments which were received in cash from Medicare attestation of successful EHR implementation in May 2011 being recognized in the Statement of Earnings and Loss in the quarter ended June 30, 2012. In May 2011, the Company received approximately $8,522,000 in Medicare incentive payments.

Also as previously announced, the Company and the Lender under the Company’s Credit Facility have modified the financial covenants in the Company’s Credit Agreement as a result of such change in EHR accounting method and in anticipation of the restatement of the financial statements such that the Company is currently in compliance with the terms of the Credit Agreement.

SunLink Health Systems, Inc. currently operates five community hospitals and related businesses in the Southeast and Midwest, exclusive of Memorial Hospital of Adel that the company has contracted to sell, and also operate a specialty pharmacy company in Louisiana. Each SunLink hospital is the only hospital in its community. SunLink’s operating strategy is to link patients’ needs with dedicated physicians and health professionals to deliver quality, efficient medical care in each area it serves.
