Rennova Health Inc. announced Tuesday they will acquire a Campbell County hospital.

After acquiring its second hospital in Jamestown, this past June, Rennova announced the purchase of the Jellico Community Hospital. They also announced the acquisition of CarePlus Center in Williamsburg, Kentucky.

This will be the third East Tennessee hospital owned by Rennova, in addition to Big South Fork Medical Center in Oneida and Jamestown Regional Medical Center.

“We are confident that owning a third hospital in a close geographic proximity to our other two Tennessee based hospitals offers a number of synergies and efficiencies for the provision of services and management and look forward to providing an excellent and complete service to the local community,”  said Seamus Lagan, CEO of Rennova.

Jellico Community Hospital is a fully operational 54-bed acute care facility that offers comprehensive services, including diagnostic imaging, radiology, surgery (general, gynecological and vascular), nuclear medicine, wound care and hyperbaric medicine, intensive care, emergency care, and physical therapy.

Jellico Community Hospital is accredited by the Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality (CIHQ) and the lab within the hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission and is committed to high standards of excellence. In 2015, Jellico Community Hospital was one of 251 hospitals out of 3,500 across the country to receive a “5-star” rating for patient satisfaction, according to a Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Provider and Systems (HCAHPS) survey conducted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

The acquisition was agreed upon in November of last year.
