Gynecologic Oncologist Sara Crowder, MD Ranks In Top One Percent Worldwide
Gynecologic oncologist Sara Crowder, MD recently performed her 1,000th surgery using the da Vinci surgical system. For the past two years, Dr. Crowder has performed more of these types of surgeries than anyone else in Missouri and is in the top one percent worldwide. Boone Hospital Center acquired the da Vinci system, which offers 3D imaging and 360-degree movement of instruments, in 2011. It allows surgeries to be minimally invasive, leading to shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery times.
Comforting and Healthy

Boone Hospital Center registered dietitian Jennifer Tveitnes offers tips to make your favorite comfort foods nourish your body as well as your spirits.

Making Big Plans

 Like many new parents, Jenna and Tim Mitchell knew they had a lot to learn as they awaited the birth of their daughter — including the need to research options for the birth itself.

After talking to friends and learning about possible choices, Jenna decided she wanted a low-intervention childbirth experience. 

Delivering Hope

At the moment of her birth, Hope already had a head of dark brown hair. All her features were tiny and beautiful — ears, nose, fingers.

Her parents noticed her second toe was a bit longer than her big toe — just like her dad.

Fresh Choices
If you’ve eaten any fresh fruits or vegetables at Boone Hospital Center, as a patient or visitor, you may have noticed them tasting extra crisp and flavorful. But you probably didn’t know they were grown right here in the Columbia area.
Overcoming Odds
Patient care tech Deontae Curtis is one of the faces of Boone Hospital. Staff love him for his hard-working spirit and dedication to the job. Patients love him for his overwhelming kindness and compassion. So when Deontae broke his neck last year playing football, there wasn’t a dry eye in the hospital.
Weighted Questions
Anyone who’s made an effort to lose weight is familiar with the flood of well-meaning advice from family and friends. Unfortunately, good intentions don’t always mean good information, particularly when it comes to advice about weight loss surgery. 
Giving Back
If you walk into Boone Hospital Center’s lobby, you may see Charlie Gibbens extending a warm smile while wearing his signature volunteer red vest. He’ll probably ask you if you need any help finding your way and offer you a hug if you look like you need one.
Labor Day Service and Clinic Hours

Boone Hospital Center is open 365 days a year to serve our community, however, some of our services and clinics will be closed on Monday, September 5. Have a happy, safe holiday weekend!

If Constant Worry Makes Life Difficult, It Could Be An Anxiety Disorder
We all feel anxious when taking a final exam or waiting on potentially bad news. Our body automatically responds when we feel scared or threatened, preparing us to fight or to run from danger. Occasional anxiety is a survival instinct that served our ancestors well. We may not have run-ins with charging mammoths these days, but this response still works.
