The hospital was founded by Thelma N. Clemente, Luis C. Clemente and fellow medical professionals.

The groundbreaking of the hospital took place in May 1, 1968 and was inaugurated in March 19, 1970. It opened to the public a few months later on June 22, 1970. In 2013 it is reported that the Capitol Medical Center has 300 beds, 200 more than the initial 100 beds upon its establishment.

The first kidney transplant was done in the hospital on November 1970. The hospital also had national firsts such as the first private hospital to host a center for Spinal Disorder which was established 1977, the first Digital Infrared Thermograph Imaging system acquired in 1983.

Capitol continued to expand and upgrade its facilities. The hospital established a voice and swallowing clinic catering to voice professionals and dysphagic individuals which the hospital administration describes as the first of its kind.
