Thank you, Candace. Good morning, and welcome to Community Health Systems' Second Quarter Conference Call. Before we begin the call, I would like to read the following disclosure statement.

This presentation contains forward-looking statements including all statements that do not relate solely to historical or current facts. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of known and unknown uncertainties and risks, which are described in headings such as risk factors and our annual report on Form 10-K and other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. As a consequence, actual results may differ significantly from those expressed in any forward-looking statements in today's presentation.
