Boone Health is certified as a Level I Stroke Center by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

Because of these designations, regulations may require more stroke patients to be sent to Boone for treatment. These regulations were put in place by the state to ensure stroke patients receive the best care possible.

Boone offers a full spectrum of services to treat those who have suffered from a stroke including neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, an echo vascular lab, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation.

Boone Health has also received the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines® Stroke Gold Plus - Stroke Quality Achievement Award for their commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines.

At Boone Health, we understand the importance of rapid, accurate treatment to prevent death and preserve brain function. Patients arriving here are treated by specially-trained neurology specialists who are on the forefront of new and specialized stroke treatments, giving more patients a better chance against this debilitating condition.
