Good morning, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Mary, and I will be your conference operator today. At this time, I would like to welcome everyone to the Brookdale Senior Living Third Quarter Earnings Release Call. At this time, all lines are on mute.
We will open the lines for questions at the end of the call.
