The stage is being set for a 10-year renewal of the Jefferson Memorial Hospital lease that will mean an additional $1 million in income for each of its governmental co-owners.

Lessee Community Health Systems (Tennova) has supplied Jefferson County and Jefferson City with a letter of intent to sign on for another 10 years, Mayor Mark Potts said. Under the contract approved 20 years ago, the next 10-year period calls for each governmental entity to be paid $850,000 annually, as compared with the current $750,000.
