Knob Hall Winery

CLEAR SPRING — Knob Hall Winery won a Best of Show award at the sixth annual Winemasters Choice Awards competition on May 31 in Timonium, Md.

The competition featured more than 100 wines submitted by 20 Maryland wineries. Wines were divided into categories based on their characteristics and judged in a blind tasting.

Judges were Maryland winemakers, as well as some members of the trade. This peer-evaluation competition is a complement to the Maryland Governor’s Cup Wine Competition, which takes place in August, and is judged solely by the wine trade and media.

The award was presented to Knob Hall Winery for its 2010 Prestige, a blend of red grapes. Best of Show is the overall top wine award, and considered the highest honor in Maryland winemaking. The Clear Spring winery’s 2010 Prestige also won Best in Class Red Blend.

Summit Health

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Fitch Ratings affirmed the “A+” rating on Summit Health’s $124 million Franklin County, Pa., Industrial Development Authority revenue bonds, series 2010.

The bonds are secured by a pledge of gross revenues and debt-service reserve funds.

Summit Health’s financial profile is highlighted by its balance sheet metrics, profitability, and satisfactory maximum annual debt-service coverage indicators.

Fitch views Summit Health’s dominant market position of 74.2 percent in its primary service area as a primary credit strength. Its closest competitor is Meritus Health in Hagerstown, which had a 6 percent share in 2011.

Over the past two years, overall utilization patterns have trended positively. Specifically, inpatient admissions, births, outpatient surgeries and emergency department visits nearly met or exceeded prior year levels, despite significant increases in observation stays.

The “A+” rating is supported by Summit Health’s financial profile, dominant market position with limited competition, good physician engagement strategy that has supported volume growth and manageable capital plans.

In fiscal 2011, Summit Health generated $23.2 million in income, which is the highest over the past four fiscal years, translating into a 5.8 percent operating margin and 9.7 percent operating earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization margin.

The CAP Laboratory Accreditation Program, begun in the early 1960s, is recognized by the federal government as being equal to or more stringent than the government’s own inspection program.
