Dallas, TX – Steward Health Care, the country’s largest physician-led, minority-owned, integrated health care system, today announced that it had completed the sale of its Utah health care sites to CommonSpirit Health, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Catholic Health Initiatives Colorado. The hospitals and clinics will be managed under Centura Health, the region’s leading health system.
