Hospital and Leadership Awards
What are the differences between nonprofit and for-profit hospitals? That’s just what’s explored in the March issue of Health Leaders magazine, which prominently features Capella Healthcare President and CEO Michael Wiechart. “At Capella, we do not believe there are significant differences between for-profit – or taxpaying – hospitals and nonprofit hospitals,” he says. “In fact, that line of differentiation has become exceptionally blurred in recent years. Both of us share the mission of delivering the highest–possible quality of care. And both of us must make a sustainable bottom line in order to achieve the mission and to expand care for the future. We are both held accountable on our quality of care, our ability to be good stewards of the operations, and to make our organizations great places to work for both employees and physicians.

Capella Healthcare featured in HPG’s Source Magazine: Capella Healthcare was recently featured in two articles in HealthTrust Purchasing Group’s quarterly magazine Source. Lori Wooten, SVP, CFO-Hospital Operations, and Brian Hitchcock, VP-Materiel Resource Operations, are pictured on the cover promoting a feature article about Capella’s relationship with HealthTrust. Using the company more as a co-sourcing partner than a GPO has helped Capella operate efficiently. “It doesn’t make sense for us to build a large infrastructure … infrastructure that would add significant cost to our hospitals,” says Wooten. “But we still need that expertise for our facilities, and that’s why we partner with HealthTrust.”
Another article inside features Al Smith, SVP, Chief Information Officer, who discusses the benefits of partnering with Parallon Technology Solutions, an alliance that has been in place since the company’s founding more than eight years ago.
