Your Healthcare Team
With more than 650 physicians, Capital Health has one of the largest, most comprehensive medical staffs in the area. Our physicians are board certified and trained in nearly 40 specialties. The physician who admits you is responsible for directing your care while you are in the hospital. Your physician, as the coordinator for your treatment program, should be consulted if you have questions about your illness.
Our Magnet Nurses
Capital Health nurses are among the best in the nation. Our nurses have received the prestigious honor of Magnet Recognition
for Excellence in Nursing Practice, not once, not twice, but three times by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. Capital Health earned this special designation for the first time in 2002 and again in 2006 and 2011.
When you come to a hospital with Magnet designation, you can count on excellence in nursing service for exemplary nursing leadership and a high quality of patient care. Capital Health nurses are advocates for our patients, families and loved ones.
A registered professional nurse leads a team of clinical nursing staff to deliver excellent personalized care. The nursing team consists of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, counselors, and patient care assistants. Additionally, advanced practice nurses and other specialists are available to meet your specialized needs.

Our guest relations advocates are here to accommodate the needs of patients, visitors, physicians, and staff. Should you have a question or concern during your stay, please call (609) 394-6336 (Capital Health Regional Medical Center) or (609) 303-4280 (Hopewell).
As members of the healthcare team, the Pastoral Care Department offers spiritual support to patients. They are concerned with the spiritual and emotional well-being of all patients and their families. The chaplains are available to work with patients, their families, and the representatives of their faith communities. If a patient has no religious affiliation, the Pastoral Care Department offers support and caring. If a patient has a religious affiliation, the department can notify the patient’s clergy and congregation. A priest, assigned by the Catholic Diocese of Trenton, provides a sacramental ministry to our Roman Catholic patients. Contact Pastoral Care at (609) 394-6000, ext. 6991 (Regional Medical Center), 609-303-4641 (Hopewell) or call our confidential hospital prayer request line (609-303-4381).
