Judge says Urbana, IL, hospital owes county $6 million
AP/Chicago Tribune, October 6, 2008
A judge has ruled Urbana, IL-based Provena Covenant Medical Center owes more than $6 million in property taxes, the latest development in a five-year battle over the facility's tax-exempt status. Earlier this year, a court agreed with the state Department of Revenue and local tax authorities, who said Provena doesn't provide enough charity care to be tax exempt. Now Champaign County Judge Michael Jones denied a motion from Provena Covenant to reconsider the earlier ruling.
