Boston's Caritas Christi to Close Two Hospitals if Cerberus Deal Fails

Executives from Boston-based Caritas Christi Health Care have said the system will close two hospitals — St. Elizabeth's Medical Center and Carney Hospital, both in Boston — if its deal to be acquired by private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management is not completed, according to a Boston Globe report.

The announcement was made as the six-hospital health system negotiated a new contract with the Massachusetts Nurses Association. Caritas Christi said the closures would be required to gain control of financial losses. The health system asked the nurses to accept a wage freeze, but no agreement has been reached.

Cerberus Capital and non-profit Caritas Christi announced their deal in March. They are currently awaiting a recommendation from Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley on the deal.
