Stephen Everett, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "With the exception of a few non-recurring expense items during the quarter, our financial performance was on target with company expectations. Additionally, DCA's clinical quality results continue to rank well above industry averages, which is a critical component of both our short and long term goals. Our company's technical and financial infrastructure continues to build with the recent addition of a clinical reporting software system, which will be deployed throughout the organization over the next couple of years. Finally, I am pleased to announce that our new center in Camp Hill Pennsylvania was certified by Medicare earlier this week and is in the process of bringing new patients into our system. We anticipate this center to be treating approximately 75 patients within its first full year of operation."
