Covenant rebounded strongly since 2009, Fitch report says

By James Clark - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Back in 2009, Lubbock's largest private employer laid off more than 140 people.  But now, a recent financial report shows Covenant Health System is in much better shape.  The report from Fitch Ratings actually covers Covenant's parent organization, St. Joseph Health System, which more than doubled its profit on day-to-day operations from $74.2 million in fiscal year 2009 to $167.1 million in fiscal year 2010. 

Covenant no longer has a salary and wage freeze that started in 2009.  Fitch says Covenant has $1.26 billion of debt in the form of revenue bonds, and $1.85 billion in unrestricted cash and investments.

    Though the full scope of the investigation is not clear, the information requests make evident at least some of the areas that Mueller and his team of prosecutors intend to look into and also reveal a strong interest in certain of Trump's actions as president.
