Boone Memorial Health (BMH) strives to supply a comprehensive range of inpatient and outpatient services, including prevention, guidance, diagnosis, treatment, restoration, rehabilitation and other efforts to enable patients to lead healthy, productive lives, as may be needed by its community, and as its resources will permit.
BMH will not attempt to provide every highly specialized low-volume services requiring expensive equipment or scarce personnel; but wherever possible, and without jeopardizing the safety or welfare of the patient, shall make arrangements for the provision of these services at other qualified institutions as available.
In carrying out its programs, BMH recognizes responsibility to make services available to all persons who can benefit from them and to provide these in an economical manner in compliance with high professional standards.
The hospital further recognizes responsibility to develop an organizational environment in which physicians, employees, volunteers and other individuals constituting its staff are stimulated to high standards of performance and can find maximum satisfaction, achievement and opportunity.

All programs and services of BMH are used routinely by all without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, national origin or handicap.
First-time visitors to BMH are often surprised by the depth and sophistication of our small hospital’s clinical offerings.
Notably, BMH was one of the first hospitals in the state to implement electronic health records long before federal deadlines. Boone Memorial boasts a fully digital radiology department, a full-time nuclear medicine program, and technologically advanced cardiac rehab program.
Designated as a level IV trauma center, Boone Memorial’s emergency department has implemented a sophisticated information system to enhance patient care, safety, communication and processes; is up-to-date on both advanced cardiac life support and pediatric advanced life support and has an excellent stroke team. In addition, the BMH Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine Center offers physical therapy, occupational therapy, and athletic education.
BMH worked with partnering health care providers and neighboring communities to support the building of a dialysis center in Danville and the hospital has two Rural Health Clinics located off site; The Rapid Care Clinic and The BMH Medical Clinic.
Just last year our hospital opened the doors to the Grace Anne Dorney Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program which offers PFT’s (Pulmonary Functioning Testing), Pulmonary Rehabilitation and in-home sleep studies.
However, the services, education and outreach that Boone Memorial provides to others besides patients are a large part of what makes the hospital such a crucial part of the fabric of our community.
The BMH laboratory department, which is accredited by the College of American Pathologists, serves as a clinical teaching site for both Southern West Virginia Community College and Boone County Career and Technical Center phlebotomy classes. The pharmacy department offers community presentations on various health issues such as the dangers of drug interactions and the effects of caffeine, while the 30+ volunteers of the BMH Auxiliary provide support services both inside and outside the hospital walls.
The hospital regularly hosts unique educational and community events such as Food and Toy Drives, Go Red for Women campaign events, an annual drive through flu shot clinic and Veteran’s Day tribute, Blood Drives, lunch and learn health education sessions, and an annual health fair, to name a few.
While the community visionaries and hospital leadership of 1964 likely could not have pictured the BMH of today, we are confident that we are living up to all that they imagined.
