HCA Reports First Quarter 2009 Results
Date:4/27/2009

uarter. Same facility revenue per equivalent admission increased 2.7 percent in the first quarter of 2009 compared to the first quarter of 2008.

The Company has implemented an approach for determining emergency department (ED) evaluation and management (E/M) assignments based on the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) model. This model uses interventions, such as cardiac monitoring, to indicate the acuity of the patient and the resources involved in the evaluation and management of the patient. These E/M assignments are utilized in preparing the patient bill. HCA converted to this system, which is used by many hospitals, because it is simpler and thus provides for more consistent emergency department E/M assignments than the "point" system previously used. The Company estimates adjusted EBITDA increased by approximately $75 million to $100 million in the first quarter of 2009 as a result of the ED evaluation and management change. While management believes there will be a continued future benefit from this change, the impact in future quarters may vary.

As of March 31, 2009, HCA's balance sheet reflected cash and cash equivalents of $356 million, total debt of $26.567 billion, and total assets of $24.284 billion. During the first quarter of 2009, capital expenditures totaled $337 million.

As of March 31, 2009, HCA operated 163 hospitals and 105 freestanding surgery centers (including eight hospitals and eight freestanding surgery centers operated through equity method joint ventures).
