Since April 2020, we have engaged in a series of webinars with representatives of S&P Global Ratings, Moody’s Investors Service, and Fitch Ratings that assess the financial state of healthcare in the wake of COVID’s financial upheaval. Our topics have ranged from the early stage liquidity crisis to a focus on credit resiliency as the pandemic has surged and resurged. Please join us as the agencies offer their perspectives on current performance and the outlook for hospitals and health systems in the context of these new economic realities.

This webinar was recorded on January 26, 2021.

  • Lisa Goldstein, Associate Managing Director, Moody’s Investors Service
  • Kevin Holloran, Senior Director, Fitch Ratings
