    About Medical Facilities

    Medical Facilities owns at least 51% interests in four specialty surgical
hospitals, located in South Dakota and Oklahoma, as well as 51% interests in
two ambulatory surgery centers in California. The specialty hospitals perform
scheduled surgical, imaging and diagnostic procedures and derive their revenue
from the fees charged for the use of their facilities. The ambulatory surgery
centers specialize in outpatient surgical procedures, with patient stays of
less than 24 hours. Medical Facilities is structured so that a majority of its
free cash flow from operations is distributed to holders of its IPS units, of
which a portion is interest on subordinated debt and a portion is dividend.
