Guru Investment Theses on Community Health Systems Inc

Baron Growth Fund Comments on Community Health Systems Inc - Oct 24, 2014

Community Health Systems, Inc. (CYH) is one of the largest hospital operators in the U.S., with a focus on small and mid-sized markets in 29 states. Shares rose on strong second quarter results, driven by higher utilization and an improved payor mix stemming from health care reform and the improving economy. Management’s volume initiatives are taking hold. More states with large Community footprints are pursuing Medicaid expansion. Finally, the integration with HMA is going well, and we think synergies will ultimately exceed initial guidance. (Susan Robbins)

Ron Baron Comments on Community Health Systems Inc - Jul 28, 2014

Shares of hospital company Community Health Systems, Inc. (CYH) rose in the second quarter. The Affordable Care Act is already resulting in a reduction in uninsured hospital admissions, and the governors of several key states are pursuing Medicaid expansion. Over time, we think Community should benefit from synergies from its acquisition of Health Management Associates, health care reform-driven changes, aging demographics, and a shift in reimbursement to favor those that can deliver high quality patient outcomes at lower cost. (Susan Robbins)

Baron Funds Comments on Community Health Systems Inc. - Nov 25, 2013

Shares of Community Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE:CYH), one of the largest publicly traded hospital companies in the U.S. and a leading operator of general acute care hospitals in non-urban and mid-sized markets, fell 11.5% in the third quarter. The company pre-announced a rare earnings miss as lower volumes continue to be an industry challenge. Further, investors were concerned about the lack of visibility on the closing of the highly accretive acquisition of Health Management Associates following its board's ouster. (Susan Robins)

Baron Funds Comments on Community Health Systems Inc. - Nov 22, 2013

We re-initiated a position in Community Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE:CYH), one of the largest publicly traded hospital companies in the U.S. and a leading operator of general acute care hospitals in non-urban and mid-sized markets. We believe Community is an extremely well-run company that will benefit from changes in U.S. healthcare delivery driven by healthcare reform, aging demographics and a shift in reimbursement to favor those that can deliver high quality patient outcomes at lower cost. An active and experienced acquirer in a sector that should experience accelerating consolidation, we believe Community's recently formed strategic alliance with the Cleveland Clinic makes it an even more attractive partner for struggling not-for profit hospitals that face continued capital needs, greater regulatory challenges and the need for more sophisticated, costly IT systems. Community is well represented on the new healthcare exchanges and we think should experience higher volumes and lower bad debt under the reform. (Susan Robbins)

Business Description

Industry: Health Care Providers » Medical Care
Compare:CHE, FMS, DVA, FSNUY, BDUUF » details
Traded in other countries:CG5.Germany,
Community Health Systems Inc was founded in 1986 as a Delaware corporation. The Company provides healthcare services through the hospitals that it owns and operates in non-urban and selected urban markets. The Company generates revenue by providing a broad range of general hospital healthcare services to patients in the communities in which it is located. The Company currently owns and operates 135 hospitals comprised of 131 general acute care hospitals and four stand-alone rehabilitation or psychiatric hospitals. In addition, it owns and operates home care agencies, located in markets where it also operates a hospital, and through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Quorum Health Resources, LLC, or QHR, it provides management and consulting services to non-affiliated general acute care hospitals located throughout the United States. The Company generally targets hospitals in growing, non-urban and selected urban healthcare markets for acquisition because of their favorable demographic and economic trends and competitive conditions. Because non-urban service areas have smaller populations, there are generally fewer hospitals and other healthcare service providers in these communities and generally a lower level of managed care presence in these markets. The Company's Medicare is a federal program that provides medical insurance benefits to persons age 65 and over, some disabled persons, and persons with end-stage renal disease. The Company is subject to various federal, state and local laws and regulations governing the use, discharge and disposal of hazardous materials, including medical waste products.
