WEST PALM BEACH, FL—(Marketwired – January 31, 2018) – Rennova Health, Inc. (OTCQB: RNVA), (OTCQB: RNVAW) (“Rennova” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated provider of industry–leading diagnostics and supportive software solutions to healthcare providers, that opened its first rural hospital in Oneida, Tenn. in August 2017, announced today that it has entered into a definitive asset purchase agreement to acquire an acute care hospital in Jamestown, Tenn. The hospital known as Tennova Healthcare – Jamestown, and its associated assets are being acquired from Community Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CYH). The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2018, subject to customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions.
Tennova Healthcare – Jamestown is a fully operational 85–bed facility including a 24/7 emergency department, radiology department, surgical center, and a wound care & hyperbaric center. The purchase includes a 90,000 sq. ft. hospital building on approximately 8 acres.
“This acquisition further demonstrates our commitment to expanding Rennova's rural hospital model to provide necessary services to patients while securing more predictable recurring revenues,” said Seamus Lagan, CEO of Rennova. “This hospital is approximately 38 miles (less than a one–hour drive) from our current hospital in Oneida and will benefit by receiving patients from Oneida that require operations and treatment not provided there. The synergy of management and services in a close geographic location creates numerous efficiencies for Rennova and will allow us to support a greater number of health care providers and residents in the local area.”
