Are You Game?


High school athletics consumes a major amount of time for many families. To put it in perspective, more than 60 percent of high school students in Missouri are involved in high school athletics. It’s a great way to get engaged and be active, but also can result in injury. There are many ways to keep your children safe while they are involved in sports. Safety is a matter of understanding possible risks and taking the recommended safety precautions.

When Care Can’t Wait

Even when we take good preventive care of ourselves, unexpected injuries and illnesses will happen. Fortunately, Boone Hospital Center and Boone Medical Group are here for you and your family, with many options for same-day medical care, including primary care providers, convenient care and our hospital’s emergency department. 

November Employee Of The Month Has Enjoyed Seeing The GI Lab Grow

As a staff and charge nurse in the GI lab, Kathy Reller works with physicians, technicians and other nurses on highly specialized procedures to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal conditions. Her job requires a high degree of skill and knowledge, and it also requires care, compassion and discretion for the people who need these procedures.

Hope & Encouragement
As 84-year-old Joan Camp laid in her hospital bed waiting to become the first patient in mid-Missouri to receive a CardioMEMS device, it wasn’t fear or anxiety she was feeling; it was hope and encouragement. 
Double The Love
When Brandy and Michael Wheat found out they were having twins, they were ecstatic. Brandy has twins on both her mother’s and father’s sides of the family, so they knew there was a strong possibility they would welcome two bundles of joy instead of one.
Reel Compassion
You couldn’t have asked for a better summer day. It was July 12, and the high was forecast to be in the 80s. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky. Days like this are a gift in the midst of the sweltering Missouri summer, and Jeff Troyer of Jacksonville knew exactly how he wanted to spend it — fishing with his grandson Tyler at Rothwell Park in Moberly. 
Partners In Health: Charlie and Kathy Digges
Most 96-years-olds aren’t taking float trips and golfing on a regular basis, but Charlie Digges isn’t your average 96-year-old. Charlie and his wife, Kathy, work out every day they can, either at their local gym or by taking walks near their home.
Slashing Sodium
Ever wonder why you can’t stop thinking about a specific food, like a juicy cheeseburger or fries? Your body craves what you eat, so the more you eat certain foods, the more you potentially crave them. Often we crave foods that are laden with fat, sugar and sodium.
October Employee of the Month loves making connections at Boone
“I love people,” Cheryl Johnson says. “I love meeting people. I love working with people.”

Cheryl is definitely in the right place -- as a telecommunications operator, she works with and assists internal and external callers and may talk to hundreds of people a day.
