Non-Profit Rating Downgrades Exceeded Upgrades in 2017

Moody’s downgraded more non-profit hospital credit ratings than it raised in 2017.

The credit-rating company attributed the downgrades to nursing shortages in some markets and rising pharmaceutical and supplies costs.

Nearly a third of the downgrades were in just two states:  Ohio and Pennsylvania.
