BOONE, Iowa—As expected, the Boone County Hospital Board of Trustees approved two contracts Thursday, hiring two practitioners for Boone County Family Medicine. Dr. Wahid Riad from Waterloo is expected to begin in August and Dr. Jason Sheffler, currently in Minnesota, is expected to begin January 2012. The need to recruit additional doctors is continuing. Dr. Jerald Phipps recently went on an extended leave and Dr. Richard Vermillion of Ogden was injured in a bicycling accident. No set date for Vermillion’s return has been announced.
