Tennessee hospital to reopen in August

The only hospital in Scott County, Tenn., will reopen Aug. 8.

Scott County Hospital in Oneida, Tenn., closed in July 2016, about three months after its owner, Magee, Miss.-based Pioneer Health Services, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

West Palm Beach, Fla.-based Rennova Health acquired the shuttered hospital in January and renamed it Big South Fork Medical Center.

Rennova announced Monday it will reopen Big South Fork Medical Center on Aug. 8. The hospital has secured a Medicaid number, which allowed it to contract with TennCare managed care organizations. The hospital will receive a Medicare number following a CMS site survey after it reopens.
