Leerink Swann downgraded Vanguard Health Systems (NYSE: VHS) from Outperform to Market Perform with a valuation range of $16-$18 on valuation and DSH cuts.

"We are downgrading our rating on VHS shares to Market Perform from Outperform based on the recent share price gains (up 73% Y/Y) and the company's above average exposure to Medicare & Medicare DSH cuts," analyst Jason Gurda said. "In addition, we expect to hear from Arizona as early as today on the renewal of VHS' Phoenix Health Plan contracts, which could pressure the shares if the company doesn’t retain its position in all five regions."
