Court denies tax exemption for Urbana hospital
The Illinois Supreme Court upheld an Appellate Court decision that the Provena Covenant Medical Center in Urbana did not provide enough free care to qualify for a charitable tax exemption on it’s property taxes. Illinois laws allow hospitals that provide free health care services to write off large amounts of property taxes in exchange for assisting the uninsured in the state. Those close to the case say that the issue at hand is how much free care hospitals should be required to offer to qualify for the exemption.
