Tenet Healthcare Corp. announced a sale of several of its hospitals and a new deal with an insurance provider.

Dallas-based Tenet said that it will sell three of its Houston hospitals to Nashville, Tenn.-based HCA Holdings for about $725 million. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2017.

At the same time, Tenet also announced it has reached a new, multi-year agreement with Louisville, Ky.-based insurance provider Humana.
