Community Health Systems, Inc.

The tender offer expired at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on August 1, 2012 (the “Expiration Time”).

As previously announced, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on July 17, 2012 (the “Consent Expiration”), $639,705,000 aggregate principal amount, or approximately 68.5 percent, of the outstanding Notes had been validly tendered and not withdrawn and the holders thereof consented to the proposed amendments to the indenture governing the Notes set forth in an Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement (the “Offer to Purchase”) that was sent to holders of the Notes.
