(ONTARIO, Calif – May 3, 2021)Prime Healthcare Services, Inc.(Prime), an award-winning national health
system with 31 hospitals, announced that it has closed its public offering
of $225 million Add-on senior secured credit notes - above the initial

of integration strategies, acquisitions, and working capital. The notes
have a maturity date of Nov. 1, 2025 with a two-year call provision.
"This financing affirms the strength of Prime’s platform, strategic
vision and quality model. The model endured even through the pandemic
with the historic acquisition of St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood,
California,” said Steve Aleman, Prime Healthcare’s Chief Financial
Officer. “We are extremely pleased by the investor response and
demand leading to the ability to not only complete but expand this offering.”
“Our hospitals and teams remain dedicated to ensuring access to quality,
