The information set forth in Item 8.01 below is incorporated herein by reference.

Item 7.01Regulation FD Disclosure

The Company’s press release, dated January 5, 2018, related to the matters discussed below is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K.

Item 8.01Other Events

On January 5, 2018, Quorum Health Corporation (the “Company”) announced its strategic decision to close Affinity Medical Center in Massillon, Ohio, after extensive efforts to sell the facility. Operations will cease at 11:59 p.m. on February 4, 2018. The 156-bed facility has experienced financial losses each year for the last six years. The Company is unable at this time to determine an expected completion date of all activities associated with the closure, which will depend on multiple items, including adherence to federal healthcare and employment laws and resolving certain physician agreements, but anticipates that a significant portion of the closure activities will be completed by March 31, 2018. The Company has preliminarily begun the process of estimating the costs to be incurred as a result of the closure, but is unable at this time to make a good faith estimate of the major types of costs or amount or range of amounts that may be incurred in connection with this closure, or an estimate of the amount or range of amounts of any charges that would result in future cash expenditures, including whether any such charges will be material. As these amounts are still being finalized, additional details will be provided in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, or, if the charges are determined to be material, in an amendment to this Form 8-K.

Item 9.01Financial Statements and Exhibits
