At USF Health Dr. Klasko created patient care and academic partnerships through a series of local and state-wide initiatives. He planned and secured funding for the development of over $300 million in new construction, including a college of nursing, faculty and research facilities and the Morsani Center for Advanced Healthcare, built around the concept of continuity of care.

And USF Health teamed up with HCA to form a trauma network, creating five new centers across Florida and a new data analysis center, thus allowing more residents access to trauma care and a broader research base for trauma.
