A debt-ridden, rural Tennessee hospital that’s been shuttered since June 2019 received more than $121,000 in federal coronavirus relief funds, according to reports.

Jamestown Tn Medical Center Inc. received $121,722 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Provider Relief Fund, according to a list of hospitals around the country given federal COVID-19 aid published on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website.

The 85-bed facility in Jamestown, Fentress County, about 80 miles northwest from Knoxville, was forced to shut its doors on June 13, 2019. A federal investigation found the hospital owed more than $4 million to 200 vendors as of May 30, 2019, WVLT reported.

Hospital owner Rennova Health, Inc. still owes more than $1.2 million in federal taxes, WBIR reported.
