Capital Region Medical Center


Capital Region Medical Center (CRMC) is a 100-bed community-based hospital that offers a continuum of care in-house from prenatal and maternity services to home health services. We also offer one of the few accredited rehabilitation centers in the state, and advanced cardiac and oncology services. In addition to being a full-service hospital, CRMC operates an extensive clinic system of urgent care centers and has access to a variety of specialty physician practices.

Throughout our history, the mission has stayed the same — to improve the health and promote wellness of the people and communities we serve. With a long history of educational excellence. We provide a strong base of medicine, supported by daily didactics and attending physicians who enjoy teaching and mentoring students.
