Results for the quarter ended June 30, 2008:

Net income was $21.7 million, or $0.22 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2008, compared to net income of $20.6 million, or $0.25 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2007. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 includes an impairment of assets charge of $2.9 million, or $0.03 per share, related to one property that we intend to sell in 2008.

Funds from operations (FFO) for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 were $41.2 million, or $0.41 per share. This compares to FFO for the quarter ended June 30, 2007 of $34.0 million, or $0.41 per share.

The weighted average number of common shares outstanding totaled 100.3 million and 83.6 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2008 and 2007, respectively.

A reconciliation of net income determined according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, to FFO is set forth below.

Results for the six months ended June 30, 2008:

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2008 was $45.0 million, or $0.47 per share, compared to net income of $38.2 million, or $0.46 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2007. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2008 includes an impairment of assets charge of $2.9 million, or $0.03 per share, related to one property that we intend to sell in 2008. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2007 includes a loss of $2.0 million, or $0.02 per share, related to the early retirement of $20.0 million of SNH's 8 5/8% senior notes due 2012.

FFO for the six months ended June 30, 2008, was $79.5 million, or $0.83 per share. This compares to FFO for the six months ended June 30, 2007 of $65.0 million, or $0.79 per share. FFO for the six months ended June 30, 2007 includes a loss of $1.8 million, or $0.02 per share, related to the early retirement of the senior notes due 2012 described above.

A reconciliation of FFO to net income determined according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, is set forth below.

Investing Activities and Subsequent Events:

In May 2008, we entered into a series of agreements to acquire 48 medical office, clinic and biotech laboratory buildings for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $565.0 million. We expect the closings of these acquisitions to occur over the next three quarters. During June 2008, we acquired five of these medical office, clinic and biotech laboratory buildings for approximately $83.8 million, excluding closing costs. On July 9, we acquired three additional medical office and clinic properties for approximately $39.1 million, excluding closing costs. We funded these acquisitions using cash on hand and assumed three mortgage loans on two properties totaling $10.8 million.

On June 30, 2008, we realigned our three leases with Five Star Quality Care, Inc., or Five Star. Lease no. 1 now includes 100 properties, including nine properties acquired during the first quarter of 2008. This lease includes independent living communities, assisted living communities and skilled nursing facilities, and expires in 2022. Lease no. 2 now includes 32 properties, including independent living communities, assisted living communities, skilled nursing facilities and two rehabilitation hospitals, and expires in 2026. Lease no. 3 now includes 33 properties, including 10 properties acquired during the first quarter of 2008; this lease includes independent living communities, assisted living communities and skilled nursing facilities, and expires in 2024. The rent payable by Five Star to us is unchanged as a result of this lease realignment and the increased rent payable, if and as we purchase improvements to the leased properties, will be the greater of 8.0% per annum or the 10 year Treasury rate plus 300 basis points.

On July 1, 2008, we sold three assisted living properties with 259 living units that were formerly operated by NewSeasons Assisted Living Communities, Inc., or NewSeasons, to Five Star for $21.4 million and Five Star assumed the NewSeasons and Independence Blue Cross lease obligations to SNH for the remaining seven properties that were formerly operated by NewSeasons. The rent payable by Five Star for these seven properties is approximately $7.6 million per annum under a separate lease between us and Five Star which we call our Five Star lease no. 4.

On August 1, 2008, we acquired, from an unaffiliated party, two senior living properties with a total of 112 units for approximately $14.1 million, excluding closing costs. The properties have been leased to Five Star until 2024 under our Five Star lease no. 3 described above and rent under that lease was increased by $1.1 million. Percentage rent, based on increases in gross revenues at these properties, will commence in 2010. We funded this acquisition using cash on hand.

In June 2008, we agreed to purchase, from an unaffiliated party, eight senior living properties with a total of 451 units for approximately $62.7 million. This acquisition has not closed as of the date of this press release. We intend to lease these properties to Five Star and to add them to lease no. 3 with Five Star, as described above, for a term expiring in 2024, and we expect the annual rent under this lease will increase by approximately $5.0 million. We expect percentage rent, based on increases in gross revenues at these properties, will commence in 2010. We expect to fund this acquisition using cash on hand and by assuming 15 mortgages on these eight properties for a total of $50.5 million at a weighted average interest rate of 6.54% per annum maturing in 2017. The purchase of these properties is contingent upon our and Five Star's completion of diligence, other customary closing conditions and the approval of mortgage lenders. We can provide no assurance that we will purchase or lease these properties.

(1) We compute FFO as shown in the calculation above. This calculation begins with income from continuing operations or, if that amount is the same as net income, with net income, which we believe is the closest U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, measure of our performance. Our calculation of FFO differs from the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, definition of FFO because we include deferred percentage rent in FFO as discussed in Note (3) below, and we exclude loss on early extinguishment of debt not settled in cash from FFO. We consider FFO to be an appropriate measure of performance for a real estate investment trust, or REIT, along with net income and cash flow from operating, investing and financing activities. We believe that FFO provides useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical costs, such as depreciation expense and gain or loss on sale of properties, FFO can facilitate a comparison of our current operating performance with our past operating performance and of operating performances among REITs. FFO does not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to net income or cash flow from operating activities as a measure of financial performance or liquidity. FFO is one important factor considered by our board of trustees in determining the amount of our distributions to shareholders. Other important factors include, but are not limited to, requirements to maintain our status as a REIT, limitations in our revolving credit facility and public debt covenants, the availability of debt and equity capital to us and our expectation of our future performance.

(2) During the three and six months ended June 30, 2008, we recognized an impairment of assets charge of $2.9 million related to one property that we intend to sell in 2008.

(3) Our percentage rents are generally calculated on an annual basis. We recognize percentage rental income received during the first, second and third quarters in the fourth quarter when all contingencies related to percentage rents are satisfied. Although recognition of revenue is deferred until the fourth quarter, our FFO calculation for the first three quarters includes estimated amounts of deferred percentage rents with respect to those periods. The fourth quarter calculation of FFO excludes the amounts recognized during the first three quarters.

(4) FFO for the six months ended June 30, 2007 includes a $1.8 million loss relating to our early retirement of $20.0 million of our 8 5/8% senior notes due 2012.
