In April 2016, after realizing the similarities in their missions and goals, RegionalCare Hospital Partners and Capella Healthcare merged to form RCCH Healthcare Partners. RCCH Healthcare Partners has 16 regional health systems across 12 states, and employs more than 13,000 people, and has more than 2,000 affiliated physicians and mid-level partners. They bring in $1.8 billion in revenues annually. RRCH features:
- Service to rural communities
- An attention to providing compassionate, high-quality care
- Leadership structure focused on empowering and equipping the best local leaders and providing the appropriate resources for those leaders to determine strategies, goals and plans in the best interest of their health system
- Fully local and accessible Boards of Directors
- Development and implantation of delivery systems focused on region
- Continued development and implementation of processes and procedures that can be regionally sourced
Prior to this merger, RegionalCare Hospital Partners owned and operated eight rural hospitals throughout the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Connecticut, Iowa, Montana, Ohio and Texas. Capella Heathcare focused on acute-care and specialty hospitals, and operated ten throughout the states of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, and Washington.
In 2015 both companies faced changes with RegionalCare being acquired by funds affiliated with Apollo Global Management, and Capella partnering with Medical Properties Trust, Inc. Medical Properties Trust remains a valuable partner in certain real-estate holdings of RCCH.
