Forward Looking Statements
The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (the “Reform Act”) provides a “safe harbor” for forward-looking statements to encourage companies to provide prospective information, as long as those statements are identified as forward looking and are accompanied by cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements. Amedisys desires to take advantage of the safe harbor provisions of the Reform Act.
This website contains certain statements that are not historical facts, including, importantly, Amedisys’ thoughts and aspirations concerning (a) the Amedisys Comprehensive Continuous Chronic Care Management Model and other clinical care models, (b) the means by which Amedisys believes that it can position itself to be a key part of the solution to the United States health care crisis as the provider of choice for the nation’s most complex, chronic and costly population in the comfort of their own homes, and (c) other aspects of Amedisys’ corporate strategy. Those statements, as well as statements preceded by, followed by, or that include the words “may,” “believes,” “plans,” “expects,” “anticipates,” or the negation thereof, or similar expressions, constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Reform Act.
All statements that address future operating, financial or business performance; models, strategies or expectations; future synergies, efficiencies or overhead savings; anticipated costs or charges; future business development; future growth; and anticipated financial impacts of recent or pending transactions are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Reform Act. The forward-looking statements are based on our expectations at the time such statements are made, speak only as of the dates they are made and are susceptible to a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors. Our actual results, performance and achievements may differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by our forward-looking statements. For all of our forward-looking statements, we claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Reform Act. Many important factors could affect our future results and could cause those results to differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, our forward-looking statements. Such factors, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately, include, but are not limited to, the factors discussed from time to time in the Company’s news releases, public statements and/or filings with the SEC, including those identified in the “Risk Factors” sections of our Annual and Quarterly Reports on Forms 10-K and 10-Q. All future written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or any person acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to above. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time, and it is impossible for us to predict these events or how they may affect us. You should not place undue reliance upon any forward-looking statements. We assume no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events or developments, except as may be required by federal securities laws.

The updated profile will be used the next time you apply for a job using your account online. To change personal information that you already have submitted for consideration for a specific position, please resubmit your application to update personal information about you that is associated with that job application. We encourage you to promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Upon your request, we will deactivate or remove your personally identifiable information from our active databases, although some information may be retained as permitted or required by law.
