CEO Remarks

Commenting on the results, Kelly Gill, Diversicare’s CEO, stated, “The third quarter 2017 presented several challenges to our company. We continue to face industry headwinds with skilled patient mix, and five of our centers were affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Despite these challenges, the financial and operational impacts were contained due to our hardworking and ambitious team members. I am proud of and thankful for our dedicated team of caregivers. Their heroic and selfless actions led to no evacuations during the storms and the opportunity to provide continuous care for our patients and residents.

Mr. Gill concluded, “As previously mentioned, we completed an acquisition of a center located in Selma, Alabama effective July 1, 2017. I am pleased to announce our rapid integration of this center onto our operating platform, and we are already seeing positive operational and financial results.”
