Surgery center plan withdrawn in Massachusetts
Boston Globe, June 17, 2009
Newton-Wellesley Hospital has withdrawn its plan to build an outpatient surgical facility in Framingham, MA, following objections and a legal challenge by competitor MetroWest Medical Center. The nonprofit Newton-Wellesley Hospital, owned by Partners HealthCare, proposed the 24,000-square-foot facility in Framingham to handle an overflow of surgical outpatients from its main campus in Newton.
