Fort Lauderdale -- The North Broward Hospital District (d/b/a Broward Health) outlook has been upgraded by Standard and Poor's Global Ratings to stable. This revised outlook reflects Standard and Poor's expectation that Broward Health will continue to address operating and organizational challenges as they remain an essential healthcare provider in Broward County." Standard and Poor also cited Broward Health's solid balance sheet, unused tax millage capacity and implementation of key performance improvement measures as rationale for the upgrade.

"This is tremendous news for Broward Health," said Gino Santorio, President/CEO of Broward Health. "Our leadership team and medical staff have worked relentlessly to accelerate operational efficiencies and perform at the highest level of financial integrity and compliance, all while enhancing the quality of care to all those we serve."
