Moody’s affirms A2 bond rating for PVHS

Poudre Valley Health System

For immediate release: August 25, 2011

Moody's Investors Service released its annual review of Poudre Valley Health System's bond rating on August 25 and affirmed the health system's rating of A2.

Moody's stated that PVHS has "very strong financial performance."

"The outlook is stable," the investors service added, "reflecting our expectation that PVHS will continue to report strong earnings."

The A2 rating has been in effect since September when Moody's upgraded the health system's A3 rating to A2 for $340 million in bonds. In September, Standard & Poor's upgraded the health system's rating from A- to A.

Rulon Stacey, PVHS president and CEO, said the continued A2 rating from Moody's is "exceptionally good news, given the way the national economy and health care in general are in a continuous state of financial flux."

Stacey noted that studies have shown that about half of America's hospitals are operating in the financial red and national healthcare reform will mean more financial challenges are ahead for the industry.

"Years ago we made the conscious decision at PVHS that by maintaining high quality patient care we'll be able to remain in a healthy financial position," Stacey pointed out. "Our employees, physicians and volunteers have continued to emphasize quality while trying to minimize expenses. This good news from Moody's demonstrates that the tactic has beneficial."
