Proposed Caritas Christi Health Care sale gets key OK
The state Public Health Council today unanimously granted licenses that will allow the six Caritas Christi Health Care hospitals in Eastern Massachusetts, including St. Elizabeth's Medical Center and Carney Hospital in Boston, to operate under a new owner.
The council imposed two conditions: first, that the Caritas hospitals strengthen their translational services and linguistics and cultural competencies and, second, that they continue to provide health services such as substance abuse and wellness programs.
