MU Health Care to Staff Hermann Area District Hospital Emergency Department  

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

COLUMBIA, Mo. (Oct. 27, 2022) ―MU Health Care has entered into an agreement with Hermann Area District Hospital (HADH) to staff the hospital’s emergency department. 

The agreement will mean MU Health Care providers will staff 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 access in Missouri’s rural communities.”  

MU Health Care is also staffing emergency departments at other Missouri community hospitals. 


“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 will begin staffing the HADH emergency department on Nov. 1.
