Advancing Quality Care

Bothwell Regional Health Center in Sedalia, Capital Region Medical Center in Jefferson City, Hannibal Regional Healthcare System, Lake Regional Health System in Osage Beach and University of Missouri Health Care in Columbia formed a collaborative network in June 2014 to improve access and better coordinate health care for patients in the communities they serve. 

The five hospital systems of the Health Network of Missouri and Compass Health Network, which joined as an affiliate member in 2018, have more than 1,000 hospital beds, more than 10,700 employees and approximately 1,200 employed and affiliated physicians. They serve patients in counties throughout central, northeast and southeastern Missouri.

The Health Network of Missouri is structured to allow members to work together as partners on common goals while enabling each hospital or health system to serve the health care needs of its own community and preserve its independence and unique identity. Each system will have equal representation in governance of the network. The health systems will work together to share best practices in business, clinical and operational practices. The work of the network will be conducted by task forces of physicians and other leaders from each health system. Major initiatives of the Health Network of Missouri task forces will include:

  • Continuing to improve the health outcomes of the patients they serve
  • Sharing data and best practices
  • Improving access to care
  • Ensuring patient care among various providers is coordinated seamlessly through a clinically integrated network
  • Lowering health care costs and creating efficiencies that will benefit the patients and communities served by network members
