FOR VALUE RECEIVED, REGIONAL HEALTH PROPERTIES, INC. a Georgia corporation and successor by merger to Adcare Health Systems, Inc. ("Borrower"), hereby promises to pay to the order of KEYBANK NATIONAL ASSOCIATION, a national banking association (together with any and all of its successors and assigns and/or any other holder of this Note, "Lender"), without offset, in immediately available funds in lawful money of the United States of America, at 1200 Abernathy Road, NE, Suite 1550, Atlanta, Georgia 30328 (or such other address as Lender may designate in written notice to Borrower from time to time), the principal sum of FOUR HUNDRED NINETY FOUR THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED NINE DOLLARS AND NO/100 DOLLARS ($494,909.00) (the "Indebtedness") as hereinafter provided.

Section 1.Indebtedness. Borrower is the maker of that certain Amended and Restated Promissory Note dated August 11, 2017, as amended, restated and renewed by that certain Renewal Amended and Restated Note dated as of August 13, 2019 (as renewed, amended and restated, the "Prior Note"). The Prior Note amended and restated four Promissory Notes by the Borrower to the order of the Lender, each dated February 25, 2015 and more, particularly described as: (i) Amended and Restated Promissory Note (Cumberland) in the original principal amount of $93,133.00; (ii) Amended and Restated Promissory Note (Northridge) in the original principal amount of $154,038; (iii) Amended and Restated Promissory Note (River Valley) in the original principal amount of $138,877.00; and (iv) Promissory Note (Stone County) in the original principal amount of $108,861.00. This Note renews, extends, restates, replaces and supersedes the Prior Note. It is the intention of Borrower and Lender that while this Note renews, extends, amends, restates, replaces and supersedes the Prior Note, it is not in payment or satisfaction of the Prior Note, but rather is the substitution of one evidence of the debt for another without any intent to extinguish the debt.

Section 2.Repayment of the Indebtedness: The entire principal balance of this Note then unpaid shall be finally due and payable upon the Maturity Date (as hereinafter defined). The term "Maturity Date", as used in this Note shall mean the earliest to occur of the following: (i) August 25, 2023 (the "Scheduled Maturity Date"), and (ii) the date on which the maturity of this Note is accelerated as provided in Section 7 hereof. The term, "Person", as used in this Note, means any natural person, firm, corporation, limited liability company, trust, joint venture, association, company, unlimited liability company, partnership, Governmental Authority or other entity (whether or not having separate legal personality).

Section 3.Interest. The Indebtedness evidenced by this Note shall not bear interest, except for Default Interest (as hereinafter defined).

Section 5.Certain Provisions Regarding Payments.

Remittances shall be made without offset, demand, counterclaim, deduction, or recoupment (each of which is hereby waived) and shall be accepted subject to the condition that any check or draft may be handled for collection in accordance with the practice of the collecting bank or banks. Acceptance by Lender of any payment in an amount less than the amount then due on any indebtedness shall be deemed an acceptance on account only, notwithstanding any notation on or accompanying such partial payment to the contrary, and shall not in any way (a) waive or excuse the existence of an Event of Default (as hereinafter defined), (b) waive, impair or extinguish any right or remedy available to Lender hereunder, or (c) waive the requirement of punctual payment and performance or constitute a novation in any respect. Whenever any payment under this Note falls due on a day which is not a Business Day, such payment may be made on the next succeeding Business Day.

No single or partial exercise of any right or remedy shall exhaust it or preclude any other or further exercise thereof, and every right and remedy may be exercised at any time and from time to time.

Section 14. No Usury.
