Mass General orthopedic physicians return to 2 Steward hospitals


Orthopedic physicians who were working at Mass General Brigham in Boston are returning to Holy Family hospitals in Haverhill and Methuen, Mass., Boston Business Journal reported Feb. 12.

The orthopedic physicians, along with gastrointestinal physicians, are coming back after "extensive conversations" regarding supplies and staffing, the report said. They are now taking calls and performing emergency procedures at the Holy Family hospitals.

Holy Family is owned by Dallas-based Steward Health Care, which has struggled financially. The health system fell $50 million behind on its rent to Medical Properties Trust and is facing scrutiny from lawmakers and community members in response to the risk of hospital closures.
