Group asks Pope to stop sale of Boston's Catholic health-care system

Catholic World News - August 11, 2010

A coalition of lay Catholics has appealed to Pope Benedict XVI to block the sale of Boston’s Catholic health-care system to a secular corporation. The Coalition to Save Catholic Health Care, in a letter to the Pontiff, pointed out that the sale of the Caritas Christi hospitals could end Catholic health-care in the Boston area. Although the proposed buyer has agreed to retain the “Catholic identity” of the institutions, the Coalition noted that a provision of the sale agreement would allow the purchaser to end that agreement, in exchange for a $25 million additional payment, if the Catholic identity became burdensome.
