WEST PALM BEACH, Fla, Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rennova Health, Inc. (OTC: RNVAD), (OTC: RNVAW) (“Rennova” or the “Company”), a vertically integrated provider of industry-leading diagnostics and supportive software solutions to healthcare providers, that acquired its second hospital in Jamestown, Tenn. on June 1, 2018, announced today that it has entered into a definitive asset purchase agreement to acquire an acute care hospital in Jellico, Tenn. and CarePlus Center in Williamsburg, Ky., an outpatient clinic offering primary care, diagnostic imaging and laboratory services. The hospital known as Jellico Community Hospital and its associated assets are being acquired from Jellico Community Hospital, Inc. and CarePlus Rural Health Clinic, LLC. The transaction is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019, subject to customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions.

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 CarePlus Center offers sophisticated testing capabilities and compassionate care, all in a modern, patient-friendly, environment. Services include Diagnostic Imaging Services, X-ray, Mammography, Bone Densitometry, Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound, Physical Therapy and Laboratory Services on a walk-in basis.

“This third hospital is situated near our Oneida and Jamestown based hospitals and further expands our footprint in the rural hospital sector in keeping with our business strategy,” said Seamus Lagan, CEO of Rennova. “We believe having a number of hospitals in the same geographic location creates a number of synergies and efficiencies and we look forward to this acquisition adding to revenue and value in the first quarter of 2019.”
