Healthgrades Names Boone Hospital Center One of America’s 100 Best Hospitals

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Boone Hospital Center is one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for 2024, according to new research released by Healthgrades, a leading resource for finding a hospital or doctor. This is the second year in a row for Boone Hospital to receive this ranking and this year it is the only hospital in the state of Missouri to make the list. The achievement puts Boone Hospital in the top 2% of hospitals nationwide for overall clinical performance and reflects Boone’s commitment to exceptional patient care.

“Our people make the difference,” says Brady Dubois, Boone Health CEO. “Our medical staff, nurses, environmental services, food and nutrition, and everyone in-between. To be in the top 2%, it takes everyone working together with a singular focus of taking care of our patients.”

To determine the top hospitals for 2024, Healthgrades evaluated risk-adjusted mortality and complication rates for more than 30 conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide. The 2024 Healthgrades analysis revealed significant variation in hospital performance, making it increasingly important to seek care at top-rated programs. Healthgrades research reports that in 2020-2022, if all hospitals, as a group, performed similarly to America’s 100 Best Hospitals, 180,413 lives could have been saved.*

“Healthgrades commends Boone Hospital Center for their leadership and continued dedication to high quality care,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “As one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals, Boone Hospital Center is elevating the standard for quality care nationwide and ensuring superior outcomes for the patients in their community.”
