Unicoi County Hospital Sale Delayed by Attorney General
All is not lost, but it has been delayed. The Tennessee Attorney General says the sale of the Unicoi County Memorial Hospital can only move forward if they hold additional public meetings to discuss why the proposal from Mountain States Health Alliance was chosen over Wellmont’s. One of the main concerns cited by the attorney general deals with the 1.5 million dollar grant promised by Mountain States. The attorney general’s office wants assurance that the money promised will only be used for health care purposes.
