S&P Global Ratings recently downgraded Parrish Medical Center’s revenue debt to “BBB” from “BBB+” Parrish Medical Center’s revenue debt.
“The negative outlook reflects our opinion that the organization’s overall profile was strained, given significant losses in the most recent fiscal year, driven by some non-recurring items but also operational challenges, coupled with declining liquidity,” S&P Global said in a statement. “ This leaves PMC with less flexibility to absorb its historically weak results.”
S&P went on to say “We could lower the rating further if PMC is unable to demonstrate improvement in operating performance such that it meets budgeted expectations in fiscal 2016, balance-sheet metrics were to deteriorate with cash on hand decreasing below 150 days’, or the center were to issue additional debt.”
