Judge Dale Somers of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Kansas authorized James Overcash, the Chapter 11 trustee for Pinnacle Regional Hospital, Inc. and its affiliates to spend cash collateral only for the purposes and in the amounts set forth in the budget and pursuant to the terms of the Interim Order.

The Debtor may use cash collateral until the earlier of (a) the entry of a final order granting the Motion after completion of the Final Hearing; (b) May 31, 2020; or (c) breach of any provision contained in the Interim Order.

Great Western Bank asserts various interests in (including, without limitation, security interests in and liens upon) personal property including, without limitation, inventory, accounts receivable, general intangibles, and other collateral in the name of the Health Care Debtors — Pinnacle Regional Hospital Inc., Pinnacle Boonville, Blue Valley Surgical Associates LLC, and Pinnacle Health Care System.

Great Western Bank is granted a valid and duly perfected first priority security interest in and lien on and against all property of the Debtor using the cash collateral and collateral in question and of the relevant estate wherever located and any proceeds therefrom, whether presently owned or hereafter acquired to the extent that the Bank holds a valid and perfected, senior and unavoidable security interest in and lien on the collateral and the cash collateral.

To the extent the replacement liens prove inadequate to protect the Bank from a demonstrated diminution in the value of the Bank’s collateral position from the Petition Date as a result of the use of the Bank’s collateral hereunder, the Bank will be granted an administrative expense claim against the relevant Debtor’s estate under section 503(b) of the Bankruptcy Code with priority in payment under section 507(b) of the Bankruptcy Code.
