Moody's affirms Children's Hospital and Health System's 'Aa3' rating

Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the "Aa3" rating assigned to Wauwatosa, Wis.-based Children's Hospital and Health System's bonds, affecting approximately $264.4 million of debt.

The rating affirmation is based on a number of factors, including a strong market position, a modest debt load and an improving balance sheet profile.

The system also faces numerous challenges, including a high reliance on Medicaid.

The rating outlook remains stable, reflecting Moody's view that CHHS will continue to produce strong operating performance and build unrestricted investment balances.
