Tennessee Rural Hospital Transformation Act

On May 21, 2018, Governor Haslam approved the Tennessee Hospital Transformation Act of 2018 and it took effect July 1, 2018. The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD) was tasked by the Tennessee General Assembly to create “transformation plans” for supporting “rural hospitals in assessing viability and identifying new delivery models, strategic partnerships, and operational changes that enable the continuation of needed healthcare services in rural communities.” The intent is for TNECD, in consultation with the advisory committee, to contract with individual consultants or professional firms to provide consultation for target rural hospitals.

For additional information, please visit the 110th Tennessee General Assembly Public Chapter 1055.
