Capital Medical Center is a 110-bed, full-service hospital serving all of Thurston and surrounding counties. We provide a comprehensive range of medical services and high quality care. We are a forward thinking, innovative hospital where trust, teamwork, and technology come together to make a positive difference in the health of our community and region. Our Joint Commission accreditation powerfully demonstrates our commitment to meet the highest national standards for quality and safety.
Our most important mission here is to serve you and your family, so we combine the medical and technological resources of a regional center for health care with the warm, friendly, and personal touch of a caring compassionate staff.
A unique strength of our hospital is the strategic relationship that we have developed with Capital Medical Center’s physicians. This partnership between the hospital and the medical staff provides us with new resources for continual growth. It strengthens our ability to expand hospital services and to add new medical specialties that meet the needs of Olympia and the surrounding communities.
Capital Medical Center is part of the Capella Health care family of hospitals. Capella partners with communities to build strong, local health care systems that are known for high-quality patient care and excellent service. A private company with access to significant leadership and financial resources, Capella reinvests 100% of net cash flow back into its hospitals to strengthen and expand services and facilities. With the philosophy that all health care is local, Capella collaborates with each hospital’s medical staff, board and community leadership to take patient care to the next level. Capella’s corporate office is located in Franklin, Tennessee, a suburb south of Nashville. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.CapellaHealthcare.com.
