Two credit rating agencies have affirmed the improved financial and operational positions of EMHS, as the state’s largest healthcare system undergoes significant transformation of its infrastructure, technology platforms, and business operations.

EMHS is standing with other healthcare organizations across the nation in the American Hospital Association’s Hospitals Against Violence (HAV) campaign. On Friday, June 8, the AHA is hosting the second annual #HAVhope Day of Awareness to focus national attention on ending violence.
Standard and Poor’s (S&P) Global Ratings affirmed its 'BBB' long-term rating for EMHS—holding consistent with our previous rating. EMHS senior vice president and chief financial officer Tony Filer, expressed understanding and acceptance of the rationale used by S&P to arrive at this rating decision and acknowledged that EMHS has a lot of hard work ahead to reach our goals.
EMHS was recently notified that some cities and counties in Maine, including the cities of Bangor and Portland, are pursuing a lawsuit against national pharma manufacturers and distributors for causing the opioid abuse epidemic. We are concerned that some physicians, formerly employed by EMHS member organizations, will be named in the suit as a legal tactic to keep the cases in Maine state courts. By suing individual physicians, these cities and counties have essentially named EMHS and any member organization that employed these physicians in the opioid lawsuit. The suit alleges that EMHS and its employed physicians caused the opioid abuse epidemic in this area and caused $1 billion in damages, including law enforcement costs, first responder costs, public health costs, and social services costs. 
In a continuing effort to provide the highest quality care to the people of Maine, EMHS has entered into a clinical affiliation agreement with Massachusetts General Hospital, one of the world’s preeminent academic medical centers.
