Temple Terrace, FL and Falls Church, VA (December 22, 2022): Chapters Health System and Capital Caring Health announced today the signing of a letter of intent to affiliate. By early 2023, the organizations would combine resources to support ongoing innovation and critical care expansion in the communities they each serve.

Tom Koutsoumpas, CEO of Capital Caring further stated, “Our affiliation with Chapters Health is a blueprint for other community-based, not-for-profit organizations to follow in order to meet the challenges of the future head on. Together we provide the best possible outcomes for patients, families and our dedicated team members.”
