Management Commentary

Paul J. Diaz, Kindred’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “In 2012, Kindred continued to make progress in improving quality and patient satisfaction and delivering better clinical outcomes for patients in settings across the post-acute continuum. We want to thank our care givers and colleagues throughout our organization who delivered on Kindred’s promise of hope, healing and recovery, as they worked to advance our mission in spite of a very challenging operating environment.”

Commenting on the Company’s recently issued 2012 Quality and Social Responsibility Report, Mr. Diaz noted, “Kindred is proud to issue its sixth annual Quality and Social Responsibility Report to fulfill our commitment to be transparent about our quality results and our ongoing efforts to improve the care and services for our patients and residents.” Mr. Diaz also noted that the report links the Company’s quality initiatives with its Continue the Care and integrated care market strategies. “Both policymakers and the marketplace are demanding that healthcare providers participate in coordinated care strategies to improve care transitions, reduce avoidable hospitalizations and lower costs. Kindred’s integrated care market strategy is designed to leverage Kindred’s national scale to build a continuum of post-acute services in local healthcare delivery markets to achieve these shared goals. Kindred is aggressively developing a post-acute continuum of service lines in local markets, including transitional care hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, sub-acute or transitional care, and home health and hospice services, in order to partner with physician groups, hospitals, health systems and payors to better manage episodes of care while at the same time improving quality and lowering costs.”

Mr. Diaz remarked, “From an operational standpoint, we finished the year with a solid quarter. Excluding certain items, our continuing operations earnings per diluted share of $0.46 in the fourth quarter was a significant improvement from the comparable $0.28 per share reported last year following major Medicare cuts in both our nursing center and rehabilitation therapy divisions.”
