Steward is a national leader in delivering world class health care under the value-based paradigm.

Over the past decade, we’ve perfected a business model that keeps patients healthy, keeps costs down, and succeeds in today’s complicated marketplace.


Asset-Light Model

As a physician-led system, we use an “asset-light” model where we lease our hospitals rather than own them, ensuring that our top service and priority is providing great care. Under our innovative, integrated care system, our doctors and specialists work together to offer best-in-class preventive care, while working with patients and their families to manage chronic health issues.

We now offer insurance

In 2017, we added a new capability to deliver health insurance, Steward Health Choice, allowing us to tailor insurance incentives into our industry-leading network of physicians, caregivers, and health coaches to round out a system of care that prioritizes wellness and prevention.


By providing a broad range of services with world class doctors, best-in-class technology, and a managed care operation, we are equipped to be a true community-based, integrated solution that delivers high-quality care and savings for communities and small businesses.

“Our physician-driven, accountable care model focused on keeping patients healthy is completely transforming the health care industry. It demonstrates how the industry can successfully shift toward a more cost-effective, local, and coordinated approach that puts patients first.”
Dr. Ralph de la Torre
Chairman & CEO, Steward Health Care

Our Growing Network

As part of its mission to introduce a new model of health care for patients, Steward has successfully completed several major transactions, beginning with the acquisition of the former Caritas Christi Health Care System in Massachusetts. Since then, we have grown our physician network and expanded to serve patients in 10 additional states, including Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and the country of Malta.

Steward Health Care has become an integrated and diversified care delivery system with over 5,000 physicians, multiple urgent care centers, 36 hospital campuses, and innovative insurance product offerings
