After 19 years of service as a member of the medical staff at Murray-Calloway County Hospital and Murray Ophthalmology, Dr. Hal Capps announces his retirement. 

Dr. Capps completed his undergraduate at the University of Arkansas. He continued his education at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in Little Rock, where he received his degree in 1985. He then completed his internship, residency, and held the position of chief resident also at UAMS. He has been Board Certified since 1994 in Ophthalmology.

He opened a practice in Little Rock, AR, for 10 years and determined that he wanted a smaller community to live and raise his kids. He chose Murray, and he, and his wife Allyce, of 35 years, raised their family in the Murray community. They have three kids, Zachary, Colin, and Lindsey.

“Murray has been a great place to raise our kids and it's just worked out perfectly,” said Dr. Capps.

Dr. Capps plans on relocating to his hometown of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and looks forward to playing guitar with the Ozark Plantation Band. He has played the acoustic guitar for over 50 years.
