Volatility in the US hospital space has returned. With the presidential election fast approaching, how will US high-yield hospital operators fare over the course of the year?

In the latest instalment of Industry Insights, Robin Usson, Credit Analyst, reflects on developments in the US hospital sector and considers the outlook for the industry.

“We see two important near-term risks for US hospitals.
