Moody's Investors Service downgraded Memorial Hospital at Gulfport (Miss.) revenue bonds to "Baa2" from "Baa1," affecting $49.3 million of revenue bonds issued through the City of Gulfport.

 

The downgrade is the result of several factors, including the health system's deviance from budgeted expectations, a pricey EMR installation and consistent departure from historical performance in operating and liquidity margins.

With the downgrade, the outlook was revised to stable from negative, reflecting the system's low debt burden and potential to strengthen the balance sheet with manageable finance plans.
