SoutheastHEALTH and the Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine are collaborating.

"We are pleased to work with The Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine," said Ken Bateman, president and CEO of SoutheastHEALTH.

Under the collaboration, patients will get access to leading-edge medical treatments and access to clinical trials, according to Bateman.

Southeast Medical Group’s Medical Director, Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery Paul D. Robison, MD, and Ralph J. Damiano Jr., MD, Chief, Division of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital, will lead the clinical collaboration efforts.
