Steward Health Care’s Financial Crisis and Private Equity Ownership in Healthcare: What it Means for Massachusetts Residents

Governor Maura Healey has accused the management of Steward Health Care for the company’s current financial crisis, which could have serious implications for the accessibility of healthcare in Massachusetts. State Representative Campbell has called for more transparency from the company and expressed concern about its uncertain future in the state.

A hearing has been scheduled for Monday to address the issue of private equity ownership in healthcare, with a focus on Steward Health Care. The nine hospitals owned by Steward Health Care in Massachusetts are facing a financial crisis and this discussion could result in potential changes to their ownership structure or services provided.

The potential withdrawal of Steward Health Care from Massachusetts raises concerns about the future of healthcare services for residents of the state. It is unclear how this would impact access to medical care, hospital capacity and quality of care for patients.
