Steward Health Care System continues to lose money on its hospitals more than two years after it was created by a private equity firm to take over the former Caritas Christi Health Care chain in eastern Massachusetts, according to new figures released by the state.
Nine of Steward’s 10 hospitals were unprofitable in the January-to-March quarter, including its two Boston hospitals. St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Brighton posted a quarterly loss of $667,034, while Carney Hospital in Dorchester registered a loss of $2.7 million. Quincy Medical Center, which Steward acquired in 2011, reported the system’s largest loss of $5.6 million. Saint Anne's Hospital in Fall River, the only profitable Steward hospital, earned $4.7 million.
The data were included in a new report from the state Center for Health Information and Analysis. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
