(LISTEN): Boone Hospital Center president Brady Dubois appears on 939 the Eagle’s “CEO Roundtable”

Boone Health is the sixth-largest employer in Columbia/Boone County, according to the latest statistics from Columbia Regional Economic Development Incorporated (REDI). REDI says Boone currently has 1,581 employees. Brady Dubois is celebrating his six-month anniversary this weekend as Boone Health’s chief executive officer and president. Mr. Dubois joined host Fred Parry in-studio for the hour Saturday morning on 939 the Eagle’s “CEO Roundtable” program. Mr. Dubois grew up in southeast Texas and south central Louisiana and worked on his grandmother’s farm. He tells listeners he learned the value of hard work and family while growing up there. He graduated from Southwest Texas State in San Marcos and provided bedside care for five years before joining the U.S. Navy for eight years from 2000-2008. He later worked at northwest Missouri’s Mosaic Life Care in St. Joseph, serving on the Jefferson City-based Missouri Hospital Association’s board at that time. Mr. Dubois later worked in Detroit before the Boone opportunity came up. His children were attending school at Mizzou and he tells listeners that Columbia “felt like home.” Mr. Parry describes Brady Dubois as decisive and transparent. One of the main issues discussed during the interview was the non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that Boone Health signed with officials in mid-Missouri’s Mexico and Audrain County this month. Boone Health says the NDA’s purpose is to allow for a full review of hospital service needs for Audrain County and the co-development of a master health plan to meet the needs of residents and businesses in Audrain County. Noble closed the doors on its Mexico hospital in March 2022. Mr. Dubois says they all agree that Mexico/Audrain County needs to have 24-7 emergency care, which means a hospital. They’re working on details. He also updated Mr. Parry about efforts to create a network of Boone-affiliated physicians in the market:
