The article unfolds that Fitch Ratings last week upgraded to BBB from BBB-minus almost $500 million of debt sold for Mountain States Health Alliance. The positive outlook was also affirmed, indicating that the system is in line for another upgrade if it continues to take steps to maintain its leading market share. Since 1999, the health care system has steadily improved its financial position, according to Fitch analyst Jim Gilliland. For example, it surpassed its budget in fiscal 2004 with $10.3 million in operating income and $36.4 million in excess income.
