Capital Care Women's Center
Capital Care Women's Center is an abortion facility located in Columbus, Ohio
OhioHealth Grant Medical Center
Ohio law mandates that abortionists must have admitting privileges at a local hospital. The Capital Care Women's Center abortion facility has an agreement with OhioHealth Grant Medical Center to provide them with admitting privileges. OhioHealth bills itself as “a family of not-for-profit, faith-based hospitals,” but hospital officials said they remain committed to the pacts with abortion clinics. Grant Medical Center also provides admitting privileges to the other two abortion facilities in Columbus: East Columbus Health Center and Founder's Women's Health Center.
Regarding the agreement, on July 28, 2013, Rev. Keith Vesper, vice president for OhioHealth Mission and Ministry stated,
- "We will continue to provide this emergency care. Even though some of these procedures would not be performed within our own facilities, we are absolutely committed to safe, compassionate care for women in all circumstances.”
