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.

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.

Supportive Care Program Encourages Patient Through Decades Of Hospitalizations

"When I am hospitalized, it can be a scary. Boone does everything it can to make things better for me. I’m Catholic, and I appreciate having a priest come to my bed and praying with me during my stay and even bring me communion,” says Cindy. “I also love how the volunteers bring me cards from my family and friends during my stay. I hold them close to me while I sleep and they make me feel so much better. I even get massages and manicures right in my hospital bed! There is nothing like human touch to make you feel better when you are ill. This is a very special place.”
