Steward rehab hospital closes

Stoughton, Mass.-based New England Sinai Hospital, a rehabilitation hospital owned by Steward Health Care, has closed. 

The 182-bed hospital, first opened in 1927, relocated all patients to nearby skilled nursing facilities ahead of the closure.

"New England Sinai Hospital closed at the end of March 2024, after all patients of the facility were discharged or transferred, with prior family approval, and in accordance with the closure plan filed with and accepted by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts," a hospital spokesperson told Becker's April 2. 

Steward first announced New England Sinai Hospital's planned closure in early December, attributing the decision to "chronic low reimbursement rates" for Medicare and Medicaid service. At the time, the organization said it was planning to place affected employees at other Steward hospitals in the state. 

The Dallas-based system has since shared intentions to transfer ownership of its nine acute care hospitals in Massachusetts amid ongoing financial challenges.
