This article reports that Standard & Poor's last week revised its outlook to stable from positive on the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics' A credit assigned to the sale this month of $60 million of debt. The university hospital is a top health care provider in the state and maintains a strong relationship through its physician faculty to the University of Wisconsin. The key factor, contributing to the outlook change are the hospitals' plans to acquire Unity Health Plans and increased pension funding. Moody's Investors Service Inc. affirmed the hospitals' A1 with a stable outlook, impacting a total of $235 million of outstanding debt, including the current issue.
