The GHS Hospital Bond “Deal” Resolution
- By Thomas Barilovits
For this discussion, please see the SC JEDA/Greenville County Notice of public hearing for the potential GHS/Palmetto $1.5 billion bond issuance by SC JEDA, a SC government entity, (https://drive.google.com/file/d/19RCyo9VdN86UNEQfRhaEzgJXFLA5IkNY/view). Basically, ~$630 million in Greenville Health System debt will be combined with ~$870 million in Palmetto Health System Debt. GHS revenue is approaching ~$2.5 Billion while Palmetto revenue is only ~$1.7 Billion, yet Palmetto’s debt is far higher than GHS’s which means it’s more risky (some of Palmetto’s debt is also tied to a $72 million Medicare fraud conviction). Higher risks equals higher costs due to possible future default. This will eventually cost hard-working Greenville County healthcare consumers more money. This bond issuance is not in the best interest of Greenville County citizens. It increases the default risk of our healthcare system in the upstate and the bond amalgamation/refinance does not save or create any jobs as required by SC JEDA.
