Roundup: Healthcare M&A Deals, Partnerships
Seward Health / Massachusetts General /Brigham and Women's
Also last week, the Boston Globe reported that Seward Health Care System announced that it would transport its most critically injured patients at 10 community hospitals it operates around the city to emergency departments at Massachusetts General and Brigham and Women's, two Boston hospitals operated by Partners HealthCare System. In addition, Steward hospitals will tap the expertise of Partners physicians to establish trauma centers to handle less-severely injured patients.
The agreement was announced last week in a letter from Michael Callum, MD, president of Steward Medical Group, to the group's 700 specialists and primary-care physicians.
