A Quaker State lift for CHS, LifePoint

Middle Tennessee's hospital companies have some notable reform-driven tailwinds helping their bottom lines these days. Late last week, the Obama administration added another one when it said Pennsylvania will become the 27th state to expand Medicaid coverage to about 500,000 residents. That stands to benefit, among others, locally based Community Health Systems and LifePoint Hospitals. The former has been steadily building a Pennsylvania presence in recent years and now gets 12 percent of its revenues there. The latter is buying its way into Western Pennsylvania through its Duke LifePoint partnership.

SEE ALSO: Word from Gov. Bill Haslam last week that his administration plans to submit a Medicaid expansion plan this fall. For the record, Tennessee generates 7 percent of CHS' revenues and almost 11 percent of LifePoint's.
