The Lee County Hospital Authority met Tuesday night to discuss the fate of the county's closed hospital.

Lee County Hospital authority attorney Jeff Mitchell confirms the authority agreed to repurchase the hospital building in Pennington Gap from Americore Health.

The authority agreed to enter negotiations with Ballad Health to reopen the hospital. Mitchell says there is a need to finalize agreements and likely there will be another meeting of the authority next week.

The hospital was closed several years ago by Wellmont Health Systems which later was involved in a merger to become Ballad.
