CHICAGO — Aurora Health Care Inc. in Wisconsin enters the market as soon as Tuesday to refund $140 million of outstanding debt in a deal officials scaled down from $377 million due to rising long-term interest rates.

The Wisconsin Health and Educational Facilities Authority is serving as the system’s conduit issuer. Bank of America Merrill Lynch is the senior manager and Ponder & Co. is serving as adviser. Aurora had planned to sell $377 million of fixed-rate bonds and another $104 million of variable-rate bonds later in the week, but decided to trim the fixed-rate tranche amid rising rates.
