Legislation to revamp the board of trustees, approved by the General Assembly and signed by Gov. Bill Haslam, died last month on the floor of the Hamilton County Commission for lack of support from commissioners.

Kevin Spiegel, who took the hospital's helm Monday, offered another option.

"I don't believe the [current] bill is going to go back this year. I think it's dead-dead-dead," he said Friday. "But I think it will be back next year, and I think it will include the provision for the hospital to become a 501(c)3."
