Boone Memorial Health (BMH) hosted its Second Annual Drive-Through Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Monday, November 21 at Scott High School in Madison.
BMH’s Dietary Department prepared a total of 2,473 hot, ready-to-eat meals, which were packaged and distributed to community members – free of charge – by volunteers in under three hours. More than 80 volunteers participated, including BMH employees and BMH Auxiliary members, as well as students and staff from Boone County Schools. Last year’s inaugural Drive-Through Community Thanksgiving Dinner served over 1,700 meals.
As Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2022 kicks off, so do more advanced diagnostic capabilities at Boone Memorial Health (BMH). During a ribbon-cutting event held today, hospital leaders announced completed installation of new, GE Senographe Pristina™ technology that will allow BMH to make 3D digital mammogram screenings available to patients across its service area.
“This new 3D technology improves our ability to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages with clearer, more precise images, while also providing a more comfortable patient experience,” said BMH Executive Director of Ancillary Services Jeff Mosteller.
U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo announced the Economic Development Administration (EDA) is awarding a $1.3 million grant to Boone Memorial Hospital, Inc. (d/b/a Boone Memorial Health) (BMH) for the construction and establishment of the Madison Farmers Market and Greenhouse. Based on responses from local entities and internal projections, BMH expects the project will create 136 jobs and retain 23 jobs. The grant is part of $15.4 million in American Rescue Plan investments announced by EDA for projects in West Virginia.
The project will be located on Main Street in downtown Madison and will occupy a currently vacant lot. Part of the site was donated to BMH by the Madison Development Authority earlier this year.
BMH one of only five hospitals in W.Va. to receive five stars in the patient survey category
Boone Memorial Health’s (BMH) critical access hospital in Madison, W.Va., received a five-star patient survey rating for 2022 from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). BMH has received a five-star rating in the category – the highest achievement level possible – for three consecutive years.
According to CMS’s Medicare.gov website, the patient survey rating measures patients’ experiences of their hospital care. Recently discharged patients were asked about important topics like how well nurses and doctors communicated, how responsive hospital staff were to their needs, and the cleanliness and quietness of the hospital environment.
