Since our founding in 2005, Capella Healthcare has emerged as a national leader in the development and operation of healthcare facilities. The Company was founded by seasoned healthcare professionals with a vision to provide clinical, operational and financial expertise to community hospitals in order to make a positive difference in the local healthcare environment. With the philosophy that all healthcare is local, Capella collaborates with each hospital’s medical staff, board and community leadership to take care to the next level.
Capella is dedicated to helping hospitals deliver a new level of healthcare for their communities through innovative market strategies, experienced leadership, and capital investment to grow services and expand the regional influence of each hospital. As a privately-held company with significant resources, Capella has access to vital leadership and financial capital, investing in its family of hospitals to strengthen and expand services and facilities.
Capella has earned a national reputation for identifying creative partnerships tailored to specific communities. In 2012, Capella and Saint Thomas Health finalized a landmark joint venture that will improve healthcare throughout Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky. Saint Thomas Health is affiliated with Ascension Health Ministry, the largest Catholic system and the largest non-profit in the United States. The partnership resulted in the joint ownership and operation of Capella’s four Middle Tennessee hospitals and potentially additional healthcare facilities in a 60-county area.
In recognition of outstanding growth, in 2012 Capella Healthcare was ranked #16 on Modern Healthcare’s list of the fastest-growing healthcare companies as part of the magazine’s inaugural “Healthcare’s Hottest” recognition program. The program identified the 40 fastest-growing healthcare companies in the following sectors: hospitals/hospital systems, physician group practices, payers/insurers, and suppliers. Only 10 of the 40 were hospitals/hospital systems, with Capella being the highest ranked acute-care hospital/hospital system on the list.
Leaders have described Capella’s business strategy as solid, not just in the words used to describe it, but in how we successfully execute it. And, now more than ever, hospitals’ business strategies must include strong partnerships in order for them to thrive and continue improving care in the era of healthcare reform.
Capella’s leadership understands the complex dynamics of the delivery of healthcare, hospital growth and expansion of services. It is our depth of hospital experience that gives us the ability to see new opportunities and build long-lasting relationships with hospitals and communities so that – working together – we can look to the future with confidence.
