Town Hall: The Impact of COVID-19 on Hospital Credit Ratings

Wednesday, April 29, 2020
1 – 2:30 p.m. Eastern; noon – 1:30 p.m. Central; 10 – 11:30 a.m. Pacific


As hospitals and health systems continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the financial impact has been significant. The AHA is working on resources to help support hospitals and health systems as they try to mitigate long-term damage, while also preparing for how they should proceed through the recovery phase of COVID-19. In this virtual town hall, speakers from Fitch, Moody’s, and Standard & Poor’s will discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on hospitals and health systems, their perspectives on credit ratings, considerations for accessing capital, meeting bond covenants, and other issues. The AHA will moderate this conversation and attendees are welcome to ask questions and share their experiences and insights on this topic.
