Our Story

The history of Boone Health is a story of the generosity, commitment and love of people who believed that our community deserved first-class healthcare. That belief is reflected today in the Boone Hospital Foundation.

Medicine is ever changing and so are the needs of our community hospital. The Boone Hospital Foundation and the Walter Johnson Palliative Care Foundation were created to keep pace with these changes and to continue Boone’s tradition of health education, research, and patient care innovation.

The Boone Hospital Foundation

Our mission is to assure the future of exceptional healthcare in our community. Our role is to seek new financial resources and philanthropic leaders to support our efforts to improve the health and wellness of future generations.

The Foundation uses donations to provide enhancements and expansions to Boone Health’s inpatient and community outreach programs and services.  Gifts elevate care and community wellness by funding:

  • Advanced education for caregivers and staff
  • Specialized equipment for critical care programs
  • Enhancements to the healing environment
