I have been a patient at Boone Hospital twice. I want to let everyone know that you could not ever ask for better care and treatment.
My first surgery was in March of 2000. It was for Familial Polyposis. The surgeon I had was great and did a wonderful job and all of them involoved made sure that my family and I understood everything going on.
My second surgery was in August of 2009 for my back. The surgeon and all involved was wonderful with that one also.
The nursing staff and all other areas as well were wonderful. Thanks for a great job and keep up the good work.
Thanks all involved and to the community for helping make the hospital what it is.

With all of mid-Missouri still digging out from the snow it seems as if February snuck in without anyone noticing, but we’re still moving forward with our 2011 resolutions.
This month’s resolution focuses on a saying we all know by heart, “eat more fruits and vegetables!”
If these powerful food choices start filling up more of our plate the calories go down as do our waistlines. So if you’re working on changing into healthier habits right along with Wellaware this year, here’s your goal for February: Eat at least one serving of a fruit or vegetable with every meal.
Mid-winter might seem like a crazy time to start such a goal with less produce being in season, but if you can get in sync now the warmer months will be breeze.
After having a terrible first pregnancy and a daughter born stillborn at another hospital, I switched to Dr. David Moreton and Boone Hospital.
They were able diagnose my blood clotting factor and saved both myself and my third child.
Then, when a surprise pregnancy happened again in 2008, Dr. Moreton and the staff at Boone got me through that pregnancy as well.
As terribly risky and hard as those pregnancy were, they ended with beautiful, amazing children.
I also have to say the nurses that took care of me for weeks at a time in the hospital were wonderful and everyone working the NICU are amazing and not only took wonderful care of my babies, but helped us as a family learn to take care of our premature babies.
I am Janet Mullanix. I have had two boys. Both were delivered at Boone Hospital by Dr. Trammell. My oldest, Jackson, by c-section, and my youngest naturally just 11 months ago.
Both times I received the best care possible. My recovery from the c section was so quick. And with the natural delivery the recovery was a little slower, but the nurses were so helpful and were able to teach me a few things to help out with my recovery.
I definitely love to refer patients to Boone Hospital. They implement the best care possible.
One in eight women will develop breast cancer sometime during her life. We cannot prevent it and the cause remains unknown.
Dr. Terry Elwing
However, through screening we can find cancers early, when they are curable.
Mammography remains the test of choice for breast cancer screening. It is cost effective, low risk, widely available and has a low false negative rate. False positive exams do require additional evaluation, which is usually limited to additional views and ultrasound, but might require a biopsy.
Dedicated breast imaging began in the late 1960’s, and screening mammography was first recommended in the late 1970’s. Many advances in screening have occurred over the past forty years with some of the most exciting occurring in the last ten years. The American Cancer Society and American College of Radiology recommend screening for all women with mammography to begin at age 40 and continue yearly.
