Capella Requests to Make Offer to Washington State's Whidbey General

Franklin, Tenn.-based Capella Healthcare has requested to make an offer for Whidbey General Hospital in Coupeville, Wash., at an upcoming board meeting as an alternative to a $50 million bond, according to a Whidbey Examiner report.

Capella, a for-profit company, would make its offer on May 9. On May 17, voters will approve or reject a $50 million bond to modernize patient rooms and add a wing. The elected board of the Whidbey Island Public Hospital District would make the ultimate decision on whether to sell or lease the hospital.

Tom Tomasino, CEO of WGH, said other private healthcare companies have made offers to the hospital in the past because of its small debt. Mr. Tomasino, however, has little interest in converting from a public to private hospital, according to the report.
