Priority Project “Delivering the Heartland”
Imagine an even more comfortable, private and secure birthing experience at Boone County Health Center with a special Obstetrical (OB) area in the new Outpatient Clinic Expansion. OB is growing rapidly at Boone County Health Center as local moms choose doctors known across the state for their extensive OB training and personal care. Expanding to meet this need, the new OB area will offer a private hallway, its own nurses’ station, and an operating room for C-sections strategically placed nearby. Two modern delivery rooms with all the necessary equipment will be ready to greet expectant mothers, as well as a postpartum room which can double as a delivery room, a new nursery, and a special triage room. With your help, this year’s priority project “Delivering the Heartland” with a goal of $350,000 will give these rooms a comforting touch of home with new furnishings, warm lighting, extra deep bathtubs with jets, a family area with storage, and a pull-out couch for Dad. Join Boone County Health Center in “Delivering the Heartland”…our future starts here.
Give back in a way that benefits both you and patients at Boone County Health Center not only for decades but for centuries to come, with the brand-new Boone County Health Center Foundation endowment.
What is an endowment? This endowment is a core pool of money which is invested. A portion of the income earned by the endowment is then used to fund vital needs at Boone County Health Center.
Where will my money go? Contributions to the endowment will add to the principal and remain intact forever. The intention is that, through the years, this money will not be touched but will grow with additional contributions.
Why start an endowment fund now? The cost of providing health care is on a steep incline. The payout from the endowment will offer a reliable source of funding Boone County Health Center can count on as upgrades are needed well into the future.
What is the minimum amount I can donate to the endowment? Endowments are not just for big donors. Any amount, large or small, can be earmarked towards the endowment. Through your contribution, you can help Boone County Health Center care for your family and friends for generations to come.
