Steward hires away top surgeon from Mass. General

Effort to bolster hospital services

Fast-growing Steward Health Care has hired away a leading heart surgeon from Massachusetts General Hospital, part of the for-profit hospital company’s strategy to win back patients who are leaving its system for routine surgical care at major Boston teaching hospitals.

It is not uncommon for Boston hospitals to lure well-respected doctors from competing institutions. But Steward is pumping resources into struggling hospitals it inherited when it bought the Caritas Christi hospital system from the Archdiocese of Boston, intensifying the tug-of-wars in the industry.
