Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Columbia, Missouri

Located in the heart of the state, almost equidistant from Kansas City and St. Louis, Columbia is the fifth-largest city in Missouri with an estimated population of 108,000. Columbia serves as the county seat of Boone County and the principal municipality of the Columbia Metropolitan Area. Columbia is home to the University of Missouri, Columbia College, and Stephens College. The founding of the University of Missouri in 1839 established the city as a center of education and research.

Founded in 1819 and later incorporated in 1892, Columbia’s economy has been historically dominated by education, insurance, and healthcare industries. Nearly one in six people work in a healthcare related profession. The University of Missouri Health Care operates four hospitals: Columbia Regional Hospital, University of Missouri Hospital, Ellis Fischel Cancer Center and University of Missouri Children's Hospital. Though Columbia has never been a strong center of industry and manufacturing, there are some local manufacturers including the 3M Corporation, a major producer of optical and electronic products; Columbia Foods, a division of Oscar Mayer; and Watlow-Columbia, Inc., manufacturers of electrical heating elements.
