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

Massachusetts lawmakers are set to hold a hearing on Monday to discuss the private equity ownership of healthcare. The focus of the discussion will be on Steward Health Care, which currently owns nine hospitals in the state and is facing a financial crisis.

Governor Maura Healey has accused Steward Health Care management of being responsible for the company’s current financial troubles, with potential consequences for accessibility to healthcare services in Massachusetts. Meanwhile, State Representative Campbell has called for more transparency from Steward Health Care regarding its uncertain future in the state.

During a recent interview with Cory Smith and Sue O’Connell, Campbell emphasized the importance of ensuring that healthcare remains accessible and affordable for all residents of Massachusetts, regardless of any changes in ownership or management. As such, he urged Steward Health Care to provide more information about its plans and intentions moving forward.
