Capital Caring Health Expansion

Falls Church-based Capital Caring Health (CCH) has completed the affiliation agreement with Temple Terrace, Florida’s Chapters Health System.  This has been reputed to be the largest nonprofit providing hospice and palliative care services in the country.  They will maintain their own brands working with a total 4,000 employees and 3,000 volunteers to tap more resources and expand care.  They expect to serve as many as 100,000 people annually with inpatient and in-home care for heart failure and end-stage lung disease, children’s hospice services and veteran care and others.  This also gives both nonprofits leverage to bring supplier and insurer costs down, as well as sharing costs associated with running the new joint medical records system.

Local Businesses in the News

Several businesses in Falls Church have caught the attention of local magazines this month.  Arlington Magazine highlighted Scramble and Tea with Mrs. B as two of the ten party venues recommended for kids.  The magazine also included Chasin’ Tails as one of the “9 Spots for Spectacular Seafood.” Washingtonian Magazine named Ellie Bird as one of 14 new restaurants that excite them.
