ABSTRACT
The article reports that rating agencies Standard & Poor's Corp. and Moody's Investors Service Inc. affirmed Illinois-based Evanston Northwestern Healthcare Corp.'s double-A credit as the hospital system argues a Federal Trade Commission ruling that it must divest itself of one of its hospitals for allegedly violating antitrust rules. The rating was performed in conjunction with the hospital's decision to amend its loan agreements on $400 million of floating-rate debt.
