Saint Thomas River Park Hospital
McMinnville officials are temporarily holding off on requests from Saint Thomas River Park Hospital and Middle Tennessee Surgical Center for property tax refunds totaling $92,021.During the last meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, city attorney Tim Pirtle asked officials to not take action on four requests for property tax refunds: 1) River Park Hospital $69,393; 2) River Park Hospital $18,263; 3) Middle Tennessee Surgical Center $2,919; 4) Middle Tennessee Surgical Center $1,446. Each request stated, “For real property taxes that were lowered by the State Board of Equalization.”Said Pirtle, “I would like to take a look at those before you take action on them.”In July 2015, Saint Thomas purchased the remaining half of River Park to take complete ownership of the facility. As a nonprofit organization, Saint Thomas is tax-exempt.
