Two leading ratings and credits risk organizations, S&P Global Ratings and Moody's Investors Service, affirmed Adventist Health System's bond ratings in recent evaluations performed by the companies, respectively.

S&P affirmed its 'AA' long-term rating for Adventist Health System, as well as its 'A-1+' short-term rating, citing AHS's strong operating results and geographic dispersion across nine states. In the report affirming its 'Aa2' long-term rating assigned to AHS, Moody's noted AHS's strong financial performance and excellent liquidity position.

Both companies also concluded that Adventist Health System's outlook is stable, and credited the organization for its smooth transition to new executive leadership.

Each year, AHS participates in a credit rating agency briefing, sharing detailed information on how the organization is performing while discussing AHS's strategies for the future. The bond rating affirmations are a result of this briefing.
