May 3, 2010, American Medical News — Health system reform could give nonprofit hospitals some short-term gains and some long-term pain, according to a credit rating agency report.

Moody's Investors Service on April 12 published a report finding that although bad debt and charity care would likely go down in the immediate future, efforts to control costs would diminish revenues over time.
