S&P lowers Swedish Covenant Hospital's rating to 'BBB'

S&P Global Ratings lowered the long-term rating to "BBB" from "BBB+" on Chicago-based Swedish Covenant Hospital's series 2010A bonds.

S&P also lowered the issuer credit rating on SCH to "BBB" from "BBB+."

"The rating action reflects our view of SCH's somewhat uneven recent financial performance trend with ongoing reliance on one-time funds to support overall cash flow and coverage," said S&P analyst Suzie Desai.

The outlook is stable, reflecting S&P's view of SCH's solid enterprise profile, strong partnerships and excellent advocacy efforts.
