NBC Boston reports on Steward Health Care’s hearing at Mass. State House on Monday.

Massachusetts lawmakers have scheduled a hearing for Monday to discuss the issue of private equity ownership in healthcare, with a particular focus on Steward Health Care. The company currently owns nine hospitals in Massachusetts and is facing a financial crisis.

During a recent interview with Cory Smith and Sue O’Connell, State Representative Campbell expressed the need for more transparency from Steward Health Care. The uncertain future of the company in Massachusetts could have serious implications for the accessibility of healthcare for hundreds of thousands of people in the state.

Governor Maura Healey has also weighed in on the matter, pointing the finger at Steward Health Care management as the responsible party for the company’s current financial troubles. The potential withdrawal of Steward Health Care from the state raises concerns about the future of healthcare services for Massachusetts residents.
