Forward-looking statements

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. All statements that do not concern historical facts are forward-looking statements and include, among other things, statements about our expectations, beliefs, intentions and/or strategies for the future. These forward-looking statements include statements regarding our future operations, financial condition and prospects, expectations for treatment growth rates, revenue per treatment, expense growth, levels of the provision for uncollectible accounts receivable, operating income, cash flow, operating cash flow, estimated tax rates, capital expenditures, the development of new centers and center acquisitions, government and commercial payment rates, revenue estimating risk and the impact of our related level of indebtedness on our financial performance, including earnings per share and the anticipated timing of the closing of the HCP acquisition and incorporation of HCP's operating results into the Company's consolidated operating results. These statements involve substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, risks resulting from the concentration of profits generated from commercial payor plans, continued downward pressure on average realized payment rates from commercial payors, which may result in the loss of revenues or patients, a reduction in the number of patients under higher-paying commercial plans, a reduction in government payment rates under the Medicare End Stage Renal Disease program or other government-based programs, the impact of health care reform legislation that was enacted in the United States in March 2010, changes in pharmaceutical or anemia management practice patterns, payment policies, or pharmaceutical pricing, our ability to maintain contracts with physician medical directors, legal compliance risks, including our continued compliance with complex government regulations, current or potential investigations by various government entities and related government or private-party proceedings, continued increased competition from large and medium-sized dialysis providers that compete directly with us, the emergence of new models of care introduced by the government or private sector, such as accountable care organizations, independent practice association and integrated delivery systems, and changing affiliation models for physicians plans, such as employment by hospitals, that may erode our patient base and reimbursement rates, our ability to complete any acquisitions or mergers, including the consummation of the HCP transaction, dispositions that we might be considering or announce, or to integrate and successfully operate any business we may acquire, including the HCP business, or to expand our operations and services to markets outside the United States, or to businesses outside of dialysis, variability of DaVita's cash flows, risks arising from the use of accounting estimates in our financial statements, loss of key HCP employees following the HCP transaction, potential disruption from the HCP transaction making it more difficult to maintain business and operational relationships with customers, partners, affiliated physicians and physician groups and others, the risk that the cost of providing services under HCP's agreements will exceed HCP's compensation, the risk that laws regulating the corporate practice of medicine could restrict the manner in which HCP conducts its business, the risk that reductions in reimbursement rates and future regulations may negatively impact HCP's business, revenue and profitability, the risk that HCP may not be able to successfully establish a presence in new geographic regions, the risk that reductions in the quality ratings of health maintenance organization plan customers of HCP could have an adverse effect on HCP's business, the fact that HCP faces certain competitive threats that could reduce its profitability, or the risk that a disruption in HCP's healthcare provider networks could have an adverse effect on HCP's operations and profitability, and the other risk factors set forth in Part II, Item 1A. of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. We base our forward-looking statements on information currently available to us, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of changes in underlying factors, new information, future events or otherwise.

Results of operations

We operate principally as a dialysis and related lab services business in the U.S. but also operate other ancillary services and strategic initiatives. These ancillary services and strategic initiatives consist of pharmacy services, infusion therapy services, disease management services, vascular access services, ESRD clinical research programs and physician services, direct primary care and our international dialysis operations. The U.S. dialysis and related lab services business qualifies as a separately reportable segment and all references to dialysis and related lab services continue to refer only to our U.S. dialysis and related lab services business. All of the other ancillary services and strategic initiatives operating segments, including our international dialysis operations, have been combined and disclosed in the other segments category.

Our consolidated operating results for the third quarter of 2012 compared with the prior sequential quarter and the same quarter of 2011 as well as the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to the same periods in 2011 were as follows:
