CMS is threatening to cut off Medicare funding to Greensburg, Ky.-based Jane Todd Crawford Hospital Nov.17 unless it resolves non-compliance issues.

Federal regulators cited problems with organizational structure, staffing levels, staff responsibilities and failure to meet requirements for critical access providers of long-term care. The specific details regarding the issues have yet to be released.

The notice of termination was sent to the Kentucky hospital Nov. 3, 2017.
