HealthLeaders Media

Marking a second consecutive year of weak financial performance at not-for-profit hospitals, 2013 expenses outpaced revenue growth in the sector and similar results are expected this year, according to Moody’s Investors Service. In a median report released this week, Moody’s says “operating revenue growth dropped to an all-time low of 3.9 percent and was outpaced by expense growth for a second consecutive year, an unsustainable trend.” NFP hospitals posted 5.1 percent revenue growth in 2012.
