Boone Hospital Board Exploring Two Future Management Options

The Boone Hospital in Columbia is looking at two future management options.

The hospital trustees are announcing they are either going to partner with a national healthcare provider or go forward as a locally-owned independent hospital.

The announcement comes about a year later after a deal to partner with MU Health Care fell apart.

The trustees will not make a final decision until they have a public meeting where the community will be able to provide their input.

Boone Hospital Center is currently partnered with BJC Healthcare.
