Saints to be acquired by LGH

Saint's plan to be acquired by Steward is dead - they are now (again) looking at being bought by Lowell General Hospital.

This is great news from my point of view. Keeping Lowell institutions run locally is something we should work towards. If we are to remain a separate and proud entity from Boston or wherever, we need things like this to happen. In a day and age where healthcare is a big part of our economy, this is huge.

See Marie Sweeney's take for more, and the Lowell Sun from there:
