Good day ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for standing by and welcome to the LifePoint Hospitals’ first quarter 2014 earnings conference call. During the presentation all participants will be in a listen-only mode. Afterwards we will conduct a question-and-answer session. (Operator instructions).

On today’s call, LifePoint will be making forward looking statements based upon management’s current expectations. Numerous factors could cause LifePoint’s results to differ from these expectations and LifePoint has outlined these factors in its filings with the SEC. The company encourages you to review these filings. LifePoint also asks that you please review the cautionary language under the caption, Important Legal Information, in the company's press release issued this morning. The company undertakes no obligation to update or make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Also, please visit LifePoint's website for links to various information and filings. As a reminder, the conference call today is being recorded on Friday, April 25, 2014.

I would now like to turn the conference over to Bill Carpenter, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, LifePoint Hospitals. Please go ahead.
