Skilled Healthcare Group, Inc. (NYSE: SKH) today announced its consolidated financial operating results for the three and twelve-month period ended December 31, 2012.

"Our strong cash flows from operating activities of $43 million for the 2012 year enabled us to reduce our debt by $26.5 million to $449.0 million as of December 31, 2012, in spite of the significant challenges associated with the extraordinary Medicare rate cut and anti-efficiency program changes that discourage group and concurrent therapy, which took effect in the fourth quarter of 2011 for our skilled nursing businesses, followed by the initiation of a new Manual Medical Review by CMS for therapy services under Medicare Part B," said Boyd Hendrickson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Skilled Healthcare Group.

Mr. Hendrickson continued, "In spite of these challenges, I am proud of the remarkable job done by the clinical professionals providing care in our agencies and facilities to remain focused on maintaining high quality patient care."
