Capital Region Medical Center
Partnering to Keep Care Local
At MU Health Care, our mission is to save and improve lives — not just in Columbia, Missouri, but for all of mid-Missouri and beyond. Part of that means ensuring patients have access to the care they need in a location close to home, and our partnership with Capital Region Medical Center allows us to do just that.
For more than two decades, the partnership between Capital Region and MU Health Care has been finding innovative solutions with one main goal in mind: give patients the care they need in the location that’s best for them. Working together to help patients avoid travel and unnecessary delays in care, our local clinical collaborations, telehealth services and shared expertise are all part of a commitment to provide the best care possible.
Combining the strengths of a community health system with the expertise of a premier academic health system, our partnership provides enhanced care for those living and working in Jefferson City and surrounding communities, including services in:
- ENT and allergy
- Telehealth NICU
Committed to finding more ways to give patients the care they need close to home, our affiliation continues to grow stronger.
- Shared Health Record. Further integrating care, Capital Region Medical Center and MU Health Care will soon be on the same electronic health record platform. With shared access to patients’ records, we’ll be able to provide seamless care — a vital component to improving the patient experience, reducing the need for duplicate screenings and enhancing the coordination of care.
Simply put, the partnership between Capital Region and MU Health Care benefits all of those we serve, providing exceptional care when and where it’s needed. Both organizations are committed to the advancement of care in mid-Missouri by increasing access to primary care and specialty providers, enhancing integration through technology and sharing best practices for outstanding patient care.
