Fitch Ratings has affirmed Brentwood, Tenn.-based LifePoint Health's ratings, including its "BB" Issuer Default Rating.

The rating affirmations were supported by a number of factors, such as the for-profit hospital operator's leverage, which is among the lowest in the for-profit hospital industry.

LifePoint's challenges were also considered for the rating affirmations, including its rapid pace of mergers and acquisitions.

The for-profit hospital operator's outlook is stable.
