Boone Hospital Center is a 394-bed full service hospital located in Columbia, MO. It is a regional referral center located in the center of the state. The hospital provides progressive healthcare programs, services, and technology to people in 26 mid-Missouri counties. Although the hospital is full service, areas in which Boone Hospital Center excels are cardiology, neurology, oncology, surgical, obstetrical services, and numerous other specialties. The hospital maintains a 24-hour emergency center with hospital-based ambulance service and a helipad for incoming emergency air transportation.  Recognizing its excellence in nursing care, Boone Hospital Center has been certified as a "Magnet Hospital" by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
 

The Supportive Care Program at Boone Hospital Center has the primary mission of relieving the pain, suffering and symptoms of those who cannot be cured. It offers direct patient care as well as emotional support, education and resources for the patient and family. The Supportive Care team is an active member of the multi-disciplinary care team and is available for patients throughout the hospital. The program also seeks to develop a larger local community knowledgeable about palliative medicine and offers an invitation to all hospital staff to support and be involved in the program. A final goal is to connect with those outside of mid-Missouri to expand access to palliative care to all people.
