Boone Hospital Center has been labeled a top stroke center by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
After an extensive assessment, the department labeled Boone a “Level 1” stroke center, the highest possible ranking. This makes Boone one of only two hospitals in the mid-Missouri area to receive such an honor.
Because of this high ranking, regulations may require more stroke patients to be sent to Boone for treatment. These regulations were put in place by the state to insure stroke patients receive the best care possible.
Boone offers a full spectrum of services to treat those who have suffered from a stroke including neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, an echo vascular lab, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, and home health services.
Boone is one of three hospitals in Missouri certified as an Advanced Stroke Life Support (ASLS) training center. Thanks to a generous donation from Guy and Ellen Brown, our stroke team has received this specialized training from experts at the University of Miami.
At Boone Hospital Center, we understand the importance of rapid, accurate treatment to prevent death and preserve brain function. Patients arriving here are treated by specially-trained neurology specialists who are on the forefront of new and specialized stroke treatments, giving more patients a better chance against this debilitating condition.
