The Ensign Group Successfully Graduates Second Nursing Home From CMS Special Focus Program
Date:12/1/2008

dded that the Pocatello team has been an inspiration to other Ensign teams elsewhere who are or will be executing turnaround projects.

Ensign operating subsidiaries, with 63 locations in six western states, acquire both well-performing and struggling facilities, and have long been known in the skilled nursing industry as turnaround specialists. An Ensign team previously graduated Waverly Park, a 200-bed skilled nursing facility in Tucson, Arizona, from the Special Focus program. Waverly Park was placed on Special Focus status in 2005, based largely on events that occurred prior to Ensign's acquisition of the facility from a bankrupt operator.

At present, Ensign has one remaining facility on the Special Focus list. Mt. Ogden Rehabilitation & Care Center in Ogden, Utah was placed on Special Focus status in early 2008. Unlike Pocatello, which had a much better regulatory history when it was acquired in October 2006, Mt.Ogden reached Special Focus status based on several serious incidents that occurred prior to Ensign's arrival, including the accidental drowning of a patient.

Mr. Christensen said that the Mt. Ogden clinical team, with support from Ensign resource personnel, has made significant progress toward graduating that facility from Special Focus as well. "We're not afraid of these challenging facilities," he said, noting that one of Ensign's founding objectives was to raise quality standards across the skilled nursing industry "one facility at a time." He added that the company is actively looking for additional opportunities to acquire both well-performing and struggling long-term care operations.
