I look forward to continuing to work closely with Jon, the Board of Directors, and everyone at Ayr to realize the full potential of our Company's exceptional assets, continuing to prioritize existing and future markets where we can invest to build meaningful depth. In my time so far with Ayr, I have been excited by our team's collaborative efforts to align our organization with our key business objectives, deepen our relationships with our patients as we build Ayr into a truly customer-centric business, and in doing so drive strong revenue and cash flow generation. We look forward to discussing our plans in further detail during the next quarterly earnings call in March."
