“This is an exciting day for Rennova and as I have stated before, demonstrates our commitment to regrow and diversify our revenue stream from its historical focus on diagnostics services to include the provision of needed healthcare services,” said Rennova Health Inc (NASDAQ:RNVA)’s chief executive officer, Seamus Lagan.

Rennova Health Inc (NASDAQ:RNVA) Various medical services

Some of the services that will be offered at the hospital include MRI, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, CT scans and X-rays. Physical and respiratory therapy will also be offered. Some of the facilities that the hospital will offer include swing beds, laboratory, and surgical units. About 80 full-time members of staff and 20 part-time members of staff have been hired. The hospital already had various in-network contracts and this will help to ensure a reliable and predictable payment for services.

In the fiscal year 2015 the hospital generated unaudited annual revenues totaling about $12 million. Its normalized EBITDA was $1.3 million. 2015 was the last complete year that the hospital was operating and hospital revenues are expected to reach the same levels in the next year.

Rennova Health Inc (NASDAQ:RNVA) Future plans

Among the plans the hospital has include getting DVN credentials as well as seeking a Critical Access Hospital classification. This will enable the hospital to enjoy benefits with insurance payers. Once it is opened, a CMS survey will be conducted with the aim of granting the hospital a Medicare number.

Big South Fork Medical Center was previously known as Scott County Hospital and its purchase by Rennova Health Inc (NASDAQ:RNVA) was finalized earlier in the year. This came after negotiations were conducted with a bankruptcy court following Pioneer Health Services’ collapse.

Some of the staff who were employees of Scott County Hospital have been rehired since the facility was purchased by Rennova Health Inc (NASDAQ:RNVA). Western Healthcare, a staffing firm based in Dallas, Texas is staffing Big South Fork Medical Center’s emergency department. A firm based in Knoxville, Stat Care, will be responsible for operating the facility’s hospitalist program.

Rennova Health Inc (NASDAQ:RNVA)

Rennova Health Inc (NASDAQ:RNVA) has announced an agreement with its subsidiary Advanced Molecular Services Group, Inc. and Certainty Health, LLC. Rennova is a vertically integrated provider of leading supportive and diagonistic software solutions for healthcare providers. Certainty Health is a provider of cloud-based mobile applications for patient-focused health information. The mission behind the partnership is to develop innovative smartphone tools to allow patients, families, and healthcare providers to access crucial patients’ genetic background and assist in making treatment decisions for various psychiatric diseases.

Certainty Health President and COO, Dr. Chris Yoo, said they expect their partnership with Rennova Health Inc (NASDAQ:RNVA) to help his company in expanding the precision medicine platform so as to address the unmet demands among patients and caregivers for molecular information affecting psychiatry. He added that Rennova has a large database of pharmacogenomic drug metabolism data spanning over a decade of real-world diagnostic results for multiple diseases.

Under the agreement, Rennova Health Inc (NASDAQ:RNVA) will be in charge of marketing consumer-facing genetic tests developed by the Advanced Molecular Services Group using the Certainty Health brand. The first product to be sold through the partnership includes tests to determine how an individual will respond to a variety of pharmaceutical drugs used in treating psychiatric disorders.

The collaboration will deliver test results for these patients, physicians, and other stakeholders in the circle of care team to increase the chances that the right drug will be chosen for the right patient in the right amount. According to Advanced Molecular Services Group, the molecular tests will be available by the fourth quarter of 2017. The technology produced by the group integrates patented laboratory testing results and artificial intelligence interpretation to offer treatment options for patients and their physicians.

Advanced Molecular Services Group CEO, Dr. Scott Jenkins, says although precision medicine in a great and important science, it is largely inaccessible to the average family due to high costs.
