MU Health Care Staffing Hermann Area District Hospital Emergency Department

Agreement will ensure high quality, consistent emergency care for the region

MU Health Care has entered into an agreement with Hermann Area District Hospital (HADH) to staff the hospital’s emergency department.

The agreement means MU Health Care providers are now staffing the HADH emergency department 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

“Connecting Hermann Area District Hospital to the MU Health Care academic health system will link HADH patients to doctors and clinicians who are on the leading edge of health care at central Missouri’s only Level 1 Trauma Center,” said Matthew Robinson, MD, MU Health Care’s Emergency Medicine chair. “This partnership aligns with MU Health Care’s commitment to ensure continued access to health care in Missouri’s rural communities.”

MU Health Care is also staffing emergency departments at other Missouri community hospitals, including Capital Region Medical Center in Jefferson City and Moberly Regional Medical Center.

“MU Health Care has a proven track record of success providing emergency department staffing at rural community hospitals,” said Dan McKinney, Hermann Area District Hospital administrator. “We believe this partnership will ensure our patients receive the highest quality care possible and offer a level of provider stability that has become a challenge for many community hospitals.”

MU Health Care providers began staffing the HADH emergency department on Nov 1.
