The Boone Memorial Hospital Rural Health Clinic held its Open House this past Saturday, December 1st to advertise its new location. The RHC recently moved from the Boone Memorial Hospital campus to 173 State Street in Madison, which is located across the street from the Madison Animal Hospital.
The move was done due to the hospitals plans to build a new facility. The building in which the RHC was housed will be one of the first to be torn down when new hospital construction begins.
The Open House event was held in coordination with the REV UP Madison Down Home Christmas Celebration. REV UP had many activities such as sleigh rides, breakfast with Santa, crafts, pictures with Santa and more. The Rural Health Clinic gave each guest a scarf, 8x10 picture frame that many used for their pictures with Santa, cake and hot chocolate.
“We had over 100 adults, at least 20 children and a few patients stop by so we had around 125-150 (give or take), which we were really pleased with,” said Karlie Belle Price, the Public Relations and Marketing Director at Boone Memorial. “We enjoyed being part of the REV UP activities as well. The RHC staff has done a great job at making the clinic look warm and inviting. We feel this is a very convenient location for our patients,” added Price.
