BOONE, Iowa—The initial appeal of a decision by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to close the third floor of the Boone County Hospital for use in extended care, has been successful. In a rare occurrence, an administrative law judge sided with the Boone County Hospital when asked to issue a summary judgement by CMS. Joe Smith, Chief Executive Officer of the Boone County Hospital reported to the Hospital Board this week that the appeal will continue. A next hearing has not yet been set.
