Where to begin? Boone Hospital Center is a wonderful hospital with many dedicated staff members.
I live two hours away and will not even go to my local hospital because of the great experiences with Boone. Six months ago I gave birth to my first child. It was the longest thirty-three hours of my life!
But through those hours I had amazing nurses through each shift keeping me comfortable and helping me every step of the way.
My OB nurses were Hilary, Denise, and Molly. That night as they were getting off their shifts I was upset they weren’t going to be there for the birth. The following night I was 30 hours in labor and Hilary came back and was able to assist in delivering.
I have been seeing Doctor Moreton now for over seven years and I always enjoy the feedback I get from him. When Dr. Moreton put me on bed rest in February I was devastated that I wasn’t going to be able to teach anymore this year.
“It’s MAP season Dr. Moreton, don’t you know how important this time is right now for all teachers throughout the State of Missouri?” And his response was “This is just one of these moments in your young adult life where you can not be in control.”
Boy was he right! I have learned so much from him and I was so glad he was able to deliver my first child.
I can not thank Dr. Moreton, Hilary, Denise, Molly, the student nurses and the rest of the amazing staff enough.
