River Park requests property tax refund
Hospital now has nonprofit status
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.
