Paul Korth Appointed to State Board
Cookeville, TENN. – Recently Paul Korth, chief executive officer at Cookeville Regional Medical Center, was appointed by Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam to the Board of the Tennessee Health Services and Development Agency (HSDA), formerly the Health Facilities Commission. The Tennessee HSDA is responsible for regulating the health care industry in Tennessee through the Certificate of Need (CON) Program. The CON program assures that health care projects are accomplished in an orderly, economical manner consistent with the development of adequate and effective health care for the people of Tennessee.
 
“It’s an honor for me to be appointed to this board and to represent hospitals in our state,” said Korth. “The CON program is an important one in health care and is vital to regulating the growth of health facilities and services so that we don’t outpace the need for these services and waste crucial healthcare dollars.” 
 
The HSDA is an independent agency that consists of eleven members representing consumers, hospitals, physicians, home care, ambulatory surgery centers and state agencies.
