Boone Hospital Center Seeks New Lease Agreement

Boone Hospital Center Trustee Bob Wagner has been re-elected to a one-year term. Wagner decided not to run for another five-year term but decided to run for the one-year vacancy left by Fred Parry.

Wagner said he wants to see the work from his past term completed. He believes that a new lease agreement with or without St. Louis-run BJC Healthcare could help to fulfill his goals.

“We feel like to do these things, that the best thing we can do is to determine if a partnership is the best way, if a standalone is the best way. If some other type of affiliation or partnership is the best way and that’s what we’re doing right now,” Wagner said.

Wagner says that the trustees will be making a public announcement about the status of the lease agreement within the next two months.
