The Ensign Group Acquires Three Utah Skilled Nursing Facilities
Date:10/7/2009

ionally accretive to earnings starting in 2010. Ensign purchased the Utah facilities with a combination of cash and seller financing.

Ensign also acquired Golden Acres, a 22-acre skilled nursing and independent living campus in Dallas, Texas on October 1. The Golden Acres acquisition included a profitable and well-regarded hospice business, Custom Care Hospice. Although many Ensign facilities offer hospice services through third-party agencies, this is the first time Ensign has engaged in the hospice business itself.

Ensign also allowed the lease on one of its Arizona assisted living facilities to expire, turning the operation over to a new tenant effective October 1, 2009. An Ensign affiliate had operated Greenfields Assisted Living in Mesa, Arizona since 1999. The lease expiration at Greenfields leaves Ensign with two assisted living facilities in the Phoenix metropolitan area, and will be slightly accretive.

Mr. Christensen reaffirmed that Ensign is actively seeking additional opportunities to acquire both well-performing and struggling long-term care operations across the Western United States. The four acquisitions and one lease expiration bring Ensign's growing portfolio to 73 facilities, 42 of which are Ensign-owned. Ensign affiliates hold purchase options on nine of the 31 leased facilities.
