Texas Health Resources in Modern Healthcare

This week’s edition of Modern Healthcare included an article on Moody’s Investor Service’s recent report on Texas Health Resources’ bond rating. Doug Hawthorne, Texas Health CEO, and Ron Long, executive vice president of resource development and deployment and chief financial officer, were quoted. Moody’s affirmed Texas Health’s Aa3 credit rating. The print edition of the magazine story inaccurately stated that the credit rating was revised. The credit rating was affirmed, but the financial outlook was changed from stable to negative due to the costs of the acquisition of MedicalEdge Healthcare Group. The Moody’s report also stated that the acquisition of the physician group is “...a long-term positive for the System.”
