In the third quarter, admissions increased 0.1% and adjusted admissions increased 2.3%, each compared to the prior year quarter. Adjusting for certain service line closures, in the third quarter, admissions increased 0.9% and adjusted admissions increased 3.1%, each compared to the prior year quarter. Net patient revenue per adjusted admission in the third quarter increased 2.4% compared to the prior year quarter.

Premium, service and other revenue in the Company’s managed care risk platform for the third quarter totaled $211.4 million, an increase of 18.4% compared to the prior year quarter. Total lives served across all managed care division product lines increased 83.1% to 389,900 at June 30, 2015, which included a 22.2% increase in lives served by the Company’s managed Medicaid, Medicare and health insurance exchange plans.

For the third quarter, the medical loss ratio (“MLR”) associated with premium revenue across all health plans in the Company’s managed care risk platform was 87.4%, compared to 97.4% in the prior year quarter. The MLR for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 included increased medical costs associated with newly enrolled childless adult members resulting from the expansion of Arizona’s Medicaid program effective January 1, 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net earnings (loss) from continuing operations before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, net gain (loss) on disposal of assets, and management fees. Management fees represent monitoring and advisory fees paid to management companies affiliated with TPG and JLL. Management routinely calculates and communicates adjusted EBITDA and believes that it is useful to investors because it is commonly used as an analytical indicator within the healthcare industry to evaluate performance, allocate resources and measure leverage capacity and debt service ability. In addition, the Company uses adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance for its business segments and for incentive compensation purposes. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles, and the items excluded from adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net earnings, cash flows generated by operating, investing, or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, differs from “adjusted EBITDA” as defined under the Company’s Senior Secured Credit Facilities and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. A table describing adjusted EBITDA and reconciling net earnings (loss) from continuing operations to adjusted EBITDA is included in this press release in the attached Supplemental Consolidated Statements of Operations Information.
