Jamestown Regional Medical Center, the only hospital in Fentress County, due to loss of federal funding, is another rural hospital at risk of closing.

Our leaders, the public servants Tennesseans entrusted to improve, not abandon their health care needs, are watching our hospitals fall one by one. If Jamestown Regional Medical Center, the only hospital in Fentress County, closes its doors it will be a moral failure at the hands of those in power. Medicaid expansion is a resource that could help stop this crisis, yet they refuse. How many more hospitals have to close before Governor Bill Lee and the state legislature act?
