Lutheran Health Losing Big Money

The company that owns the Fort Wayne-based Lutheran Health Network continues to have huge money problems.

Financial analysts are warning clients holding stock in Community Health Systems that they expect the stock to lag behind the company’s peers over the next year, after the company reported an annual loss of more than 2.4-billion dollars.  Most of that loss came in the fourth quarter of 2017, but the company says it still plans on building a new 100-bed, 100-million dollar hospital in downtown Fort Wayne.
