On February 21, 2019, Jellico Community Hospital filed a WARN notification with the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The letter explains that the company could be carrying out a permanent layoff in the near future. The potential layoff would be effective February 28, 2019.
The hospital is located at 188 Hospital Lane in Jellico, Tennessee. Late last year, it was announced that Rennova Health Inc. would be acquiring the hospital. That transaction was expected to close sometime during the first quarter of 2019. The workers at the facility are not represented by a collective bargaining unit.
