Mayor Fears Loss of Wellmont Headquarters and Millions Annually if Merger Succeeds
Kingsport Mayor Dennis Phillips worries that Wellmont Health System’s corporate headquarters in the city is in jeopardy – which he sees translating to the loss of many high paying jobs and up to $80 million dollars annually for the city. That as Wellmont continues to try and merge with another health care system. Phillips is calling for a community forum Monday night to get in front of Wellmont possibly merging and jeopardizing its Kingsport headquarters. He said, “If there is a merger or sale, there is a very good chance, in my opinion, that the corporate office will be combined with the corporate office of the larger entity and we will be left with just a skeleton crew.” (LM)
