S&P Global Ratings is publishing its methodology for assigning ratings to U.S. and Canadian not-for-profit acute care stand-alone hospitals and health care systems. Our methodology classifies the primary credit factors that we review as part of either the enterprise profile or the financial profile. While many of an organization’s activities affect both profiles, we believe our approach clearly identifies the various ways that strategic and operational activities affect an organization.
