Memorial 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, May 28. Have a happy, safe holiday weekend!

When Nature Gets Under Your Skin

Spring’s arrival means longer days, shorter sleeves, and resuming your favorite outdoor activities. It also means increased contact with things that irritate your skin, from the sun to everything under it.

Boone Hospital Center Named Level 1 STEMI Center by Missouri State Department of Health and Senior Services

Boone Hospital Center has been designated a Level 1 STEMI center by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. STEMI stands for ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction and is a potentially fatal form of heart attack. Level 1 STEMI designation is the highest possible honor given to hospitals. The designation is part of the state department’s Time Critical Diagnosis or “TCD” plans and it allows Boone Hospital to act as a heart attack resource in the community it serves.  

Positive Outcomes

When nurses rated Boone Hospital Center one of the best places to work in Missouri on Nurse.org, this was good news not just for the hospital, but for patients and families. When you or a loved one needs medical care, nurses make a big difference.

The Bionic Woman

81‐year‐old Norma Long is the epitome of class. She is always dressed to the nines and never has a hair out of place. She is not one to complain, and she is always thinking of others before herself. All of this stayed true even in the midst of her health crisis.

Chicken Marinade Recipe

Meal prepping doesn’t having to be all-consuming, try this simple suggestion that involves taking a little extra time as you put away your groceries.

Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

I am planting some spaghetti squash seeds in my garden this spring (best in early May for Central Missouri), specifically because this Pad Thai recipe made me fall in love with this winter squash. If you have never eaten spaghetti squash, it is usually around 3 pounds and pale yellow. After it is cooked the inside becomes a bowl of noodle shaped starchy veggies, it is pretty incredible! I enjoy telling my patients about this noodle substitute if they are wanting to find a lower calorie and lower carbohydrate substitute for normal pasta.

Mediterranean Lentil Salad

Lentils are a part of the legume family. Other common legumes include peas, chickpeas, beans, soybeans, and peanuts. Lentils are cheap and they pack many vitamins and minerals like folate, manganeseiron, phosphorous, coppervitamin B1, and potassium. The energy from lentils sticks with you and keeps you satisfied due to its high protein and fiber content. Lentils aren’t complicated to cook, and to save time, you could cook them in bulk for the week and freeze what you don’t end up using.

Run. Walk. Honor.

Lt. Buddy Anliker of the University of Missouri Police Department and his wife, Christie, were out for a run shortly after the 2016 shooting in Dallas, Texas, where five police officers were killed. 

“We were talking about that event and we both said, ‘We have to do more. We have to do something different,’” Buddy says. 

“We have to fix it.”

Nathaniel “Bud” Murphey, MD, of Boone Medical Group Ashland is well known in his community and is loved dearly by his patients. He has practiced medicine for more than 35 years in mid-Missouri and has been in Ashland for over 20 years. While he’s known for caring for the health of many, some may not know that the doctor recently overcame a major health scare himself.
