Audrain County and Boone Health to Sign Non-Disclosure Agreement to Evaluate Future Hospital Options

The following press was sent out by Boone Health on Thursday, April 11th, 2024.

Audrain County Officials and Boone Health are prepared to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) on Friday, April 12, 2024, at the Audrain County Courthouse Rotunda at 2pm.

The purpose of the NDA is to allow for a full review of hospital service needs for Audrain County and the co-development of a master health plan to meet the needs of the citizens and businesses of the county.

“The signing of an NDA with Boone Health marks a significant milestone to secure sustainable hospital services for Audrain County and surrounding communities.

As a known regional healthcare system with a proven track record for quality outcomes, Boone Health is more than qualified to explore the establishment of a Critical Access Hospital (CAH) in Mexico,” states Alan Winders, Presiding Commissioner, Audrain County.

“The County, City and Health Department have worked hard to assess the healthcare needs of area residents and identify a qualified healthcare system that can meet those needs.”

Boone Health has been providing healthcare to mid-Missouri for more than 100 years and was recently recognized as one of America’s Best 100 Hospitals by Healthgrades – the only hospital recognized in Missouri.

“Audrain County is made up of remarkable communities who deserve excellent definitive healthcare close to home.

With Boone’s commitment to delivering superior outcomes-focused healthcare to local communities, this initiative with Audrain is a natural extension for our existing presence.

We look forward to working together with the strong leadership group in Audrain County to meet the needs of their citizens,” states Brady Dubois, CEO, Boone Health.
