Lower court’s ruling on Urbana, IL, hospital reversed

Chicago Tribune, August 28, 2008

An Illinois state appeals court has reversed a lower court's decision that had allowed Urbana-based Provena Covenant Medical Center to keep its tax-exempt status in accordance with state laws. The case is part of the ongoing saga over whether Provena Covenant is a non-profit charitable institution. It has also been a case followed nationally, with state and federal lawmakers attacking non-profit hospital tax exemptions and questioning whether such health facilities are providing enough charity care.
