  The University of Missouri Health System and Columbia Surgical Associates announced their partnership to expand health care options for patients in Mid-Missouri.

President and senior partner of Columbia Surgical Associates Walter Peters said the collaboration will give CSA patients more choices for where they can receive care. He said this new affiliation will also help CSA improve its quality of performance for patients.

“It allows us to use the resources of a large academic center to help measure the quality of what we perform and to help to improve the effectives of our care, as well as improve the efficiency of our care,” Peters said.

Peters said Columbia’s health care providers have discussed ways to connect community and university physicians for years. He says this “town-and-gown” connection will strengthen Columbia’s position in surgical care as well as facilitate new development and execution of the best practices for improving patient outcomes.
