Caritas Sale a Symptom of Change

This article is more than 16 years old.

The Archdiocese of Boston is checking out of the health care business. Officials announced yesterday that the church plans to sell its six-hospital system, Caritas Christi Health Care. The proposed sale involves a Missouri-based Catholic hospital network, Ascension Health Incorporated.

This latest move is part of a trend that's seen the Archdiocese make management decisions that have reduced its reach into aspects of society in recent years. WBUR's Monica Brady-Myerov now looks at whether this is also having an impact on the church's mission.
