This website contains forward-looking statements. Statements that are predictive in nature, that depend upon or refer to future events or conditions or that include words such as "expects", "anticipates", "intends", "plans", "believes", "estimates", and similar expressions are forward-looking statements. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results and performance to be materially different from any future results or performance expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. These factors include the following: our ability to attract and retain qualified nurses and other healthcare personnel; costs and availability of short-term leases for our travel nurses; demand for the healthcare services we provide, both nationally and in the regions in which we operate; the functioning of our information systems; the effect of existing or future government regulation and federal and state legislative and enforcement initiatives on our business; our clients' ability to pay us for our services; our ability to successfully implement our acquisition and development strategies; the effect of liabilities and other claims asserted against us; the effect of competition in the markets we serve, and other factors set forth under the caption "Risk Factors" in the Company's Form 10-K for the most recent year ended December 31.
Although we believe that these statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, we cannot guarantee future results. Given these uncertainties, the forward-looking statements discussed in this website might not occur. Specifically, while it is Cross Country's intention to update its financial guidance quarterly, it should not be assumed that our silence over time means that actual events are occurring as expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements.
