Caution Urged In Unicoi Hospital Deal
The Unicoi County Hospital Board of Control will meet again October 18th to continue discussions about the facility being acquired by another hospital corporation. Many Unicoi residents felt that it was going to be a slamdunk for Mountain States Health Alliance. A representative of Wellmont, another large local health care provider, attended the meeting and defended their short five-page proposal saying they had trouble getting information and even felt some hostility from the present hospital board of control. MSHA had apparently been working for months with hospital officials to put together the package they proposed that would provide a cash payoff to Unicoi County and Erwin government's for their financial obligations and 6 million dollar debt. The next meeting is expected to see even greater community involvement and will have to be held in a larger location.(CS)
