CHICAGO — Beacon Health System is bringing $157 million of double-A-minus rated hospital bonds to market Wednesday, marking the first borrowing for the new credit, which was created last year by the merger of two Indiana-based hospitals.

The transaction will refund outstanding debt issued separately by Memorial Health System and Elkhart General Hospital, bringing the debt under a new bond indenture that features a pledge of the combined revenues of both hospitals.
