For many Boone Hospital Center nurses, caring extends beyond the campus and into the communities in which we live, with a holistic approach to caring for the mental, physical, psychological and spiritual needs of our current and future patients. Through involvement in faith-based and community programs, nurses serve as advocates, mentors and caring partners for those in need.
Oncology nurses participate annually in the “Relay for Life” fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Nurses contributed to Boone Hospital Center’s Diamond Sponsorship by planning and manning the booth, participating in the walk, selling luminaries and providing gift baskets for a silent auction.
The annual Intensive Care Nursery Reunion provides a venue for former patients, their families and nurses to reconnect and collectively celebrate the successes in growth and development of our “Boone Babies.” The gathering provides a means for families to share experiences and develop support systems while the kids enjoy games and prizes.
