Steward to acquire Stoughton’s New England Sinai

Firm drawn to hospital’s post-acute care services

In its latest expansion move, fast-growing Steward Health Care System has agreed to buy New England Sinai Hospital, a 212-bed “post-acute care’’ site in Stoughton that treats patients recovering from serious illnesses or accidents after they leave other hospitals.

Steward, which already owns 10 community hospitals and doctors groups across Eastern Massachusetts, said it plans to use New England Sinai to strengthen its “continuum of care’’ and lower costs by moving patients from more expensive hospitals and reducing readmissions.
