Steward Health Care, a hospital operator based in Massachusetts, has announced that it will sell its national physician network to UnitedHealth’s Optum Care unit. The sale of Stewardship Health to Optum’s Collaborative Care Holdings, LLC was filed with the state Health Policy Commission on Tuesday.

Last year, Steward struggled financially and had trouble paying its bills and rent. In an effort to improve its financial situation and operations, the company has decided to sell its physician group as part of a larger plan to strengthen its system of 33 hospitals nationwide.

The sale is expected to be completed in the coming weeks. While the price for the sale has not been disclosed, officials from both companies have stated that it is seen as a way for Steward Health Care to resolve its financial crisis and improve its operations moving forward.
