At Tuesday night’s meeting, representatives from the Jellico Hospital appeared before the board of mayor and aldermen asking for a lease amendment.
The current lease is set up on a two year revolving lease with a required one-year notice for breaking the lease. Hospital Administrator David Butler informed the board the hospital’s parent company, Adventist Health, was requesting the lease be amended to a one year automatically renewing lease. The board agreed to amend the lease.
This is the second lease amendment for the hospital in the past year.
