Moody's Investors Service has upgraded Shreveport, La.-based Willis-Knighton Medical Center's revenue bonds to "A1" from "A2," affecting $145 million of outstanding revenue bonds issued through the Louisiana Public Facilities Authority.

The upgrade is based on a number of factors, including Willis-Knighton's strengthened market presence and stellar operating performance.
