Boone Hospital Moves Forward in Talk of Partnering with MU Health

Aug 1, 2017

In a release posted today, Boone Hospital in Columbia announced it’s one step closer to a possible alignment with University of Missouri Health Care after a unanimous agreement of Boone Hospital’s board of trustees to explore the details of an arrangement.

As part of this process, the hospital says it’s putting conversations with other potential partners, including BJC HealthCare, Duke/LifePoint Health Care and Saint Luke’s Health System, on hold.

In April, Boone Hospital said they were re-evaluating arrangements in advance of their agreement with BJC HealthCare’s expiration in 2020. At the time, they were exploring five different options, including a new agreement with BJC and a partnership with MU Health.
