UCMH Board Votes For MSHA Take Over
The Unicoi County Memorial Hospital Board of Control voted Thursday afternoon for the final multi-million dollar deal to sell their hospital to Johnson City-based Mountain States Health Alliance. The Unicoi County medical takeover has been a hot button item with much controversy. The final vote was 4 to 1 with board member Sue Jean Wilson opposing the sale. She says the people of Unicoi County want the Hospital board of Control to accept an offer made by Wellmont Health System. Final agreement paperwork is expected to be submitted to the Tennessee Attorney General's Office by the first of next week. The state will have 45 days to review the final proposal to see if they feel it is proper and should be consummated. Mountain States is looking at property in the Temple Hill area for construction of a new medical facility to serve Unicoi County residents. (CS)
