GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Health Care Providers » Long-Term Care Facilities
Compare: » details
Ensign Group, Inc. was incorporated in April 1999 in Delaware. The Company is a provider of skilled nursing and rehabilitative care services through the operation of 108 facilities, seven home health and six hospice operations, located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington. Its operations provide a broad spectrum of skilled nursing, assisted living, home health and hospice services, including physical, occupational and speech therapies, and other rehabilitative and healthcare services, for both long-term residents and short-stay rehabilitation patients. The Company owns and operates urgent care centers in the Seattle, Washington area and an urgent care franchise system with locations in several states. These walk-in clinics offer daily access to healthcare for minor injuries and illnesses, including x-ray and lab services, all from convenient neighborhood locations with no appointments. As of December 31, 2012, the Company owned 86 of its 108 facilities and operated an additional 22 facilities under long-term lease arrangements, and had options to purchase two of those 22 facilities. Since inception, the Company has acquired 108 facilities with 12,198 operational beds, including 1,322 assisted living beds and 477 independent living units, through both long-term leases and purchases. All of the Company's operations are operated by separate, independent subsidiaries, each of which has its own management, employees and assets. One of the Company's wholly-owned subsidiaries, the Service Center, provides centralized accounting, payroll, human resources, information technology, legal, risk management and other centralized services to the other operating subsidiaries through contractual relationships with such subsidiaries. The Company also has a wholly-owned captive insurance subsidiary that provides some claims-made coverage to the Company's operating subsidiaries for general and professional liability, as well as coverage for certain workers' compensation insurance liabilities. The Company has a single reportable segment — long-term care services, which includes the operation of skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, home health and hospice operations, urgent care centers and related ancillary services. Its operations are subject to various regulations and licensing requirements promulgated by state and local health and social service agencies and other regulatory authorities. The Company competes with inpatient rehabilitation facilities and long-term acute care hospitals.
