The Code of Ethics and Common Ground are posted on our website located at www.lifepointhospitals.com under the heading Corporate Governance. We intend to disclose any amendments to our Code of Ethics and any waiver from a provision of our code, as required by the SEC, on our website within four business days following such amendment or waiver.
