Temple University Hospital's $60.9 million revenue bond issue, which was originally scheduled to price in April 2003, is being reduced and restructured with a possibility of coming to market in the next few weeks as of June 6, 2003. The hospital's bonds will be issued through the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Hospitals & Higher Education Facilities Authority. In April, Moody's Investors Service Inc. has assigned the bonds a Baa2 rating with a negative outlook, reflecting deep health care cuts in the state's fiscal year 2004 budget, the probationary status of the medical school, and rising labor, malpractice and drug costs endemic to the health care industry.
