How it All Began

It all started in 1995, local healthcare leaders aligned area hospitals to work together to improve healthcare in Western North Carolina. Five years later, the supply chain leaders, led by Tim Bugg and Mark Landau, began aggregating purchasing volumes to negotiate better prices for all healthcare contracts and established the WNC Health Network. The GPO then separated from The WNC Health Network and Capstone Health Alliance was founded in 2013.

Capstone is pleased to maintain membership/partnership with numerous healthcare industry organizations. See below for just a few examples.
