The New Jersey Health Care Facilities Financing Authority today will price nearly $250 million of state contract bonds to help support Catholic Health East's buyout of three Newark hospitals, a move that will help eliminate the area's number of vacant hospital beds.

The transaction will enable Pennsylvania-based Catholic Health East to take over Saint Michael's Medical Center from Cathedral Healthcare System and pay down roughly $144 million of its outstanding debt.
