CoxHealth is pleased to continue expanding and growing to meet the changing needs of our community.
Neuro Trauma Intensive Care Unit Expansion
A 37,000-square-foot, two-story expansion is now complete at the Neuro Trauma Intensive Care Unit at Cox South.
Construction began in fall 2010 and was completed in October 2011.
The new unit complements the new Emergency Department by adding 24 critical care patient rooms. The beds are located on the ground floor in the same corridor as Cox South's current critical care beds. The unit extends to the south along National from the current unit. The construction created 27 new beds, but it also involved losing three surgical ICU beds, leaving a net gain of 24. It brings the total number of adult critical care beds to 76.
Changes at National Avenue and James River Freeway
There is a new diverging diamond intersection at National Avenue and James River Freeway. Here's what you need to know to get to Cox South.
An access tunnel under National Avenue has been added, allowing access to Cox South from northbound National.
To get to Cox South:
- From northbound National: Turn right onto Bradford Parkway, then right again into the Cox tunnel under National. The new traffic pattern eliminates left turns into the Cox South campus from northbound National.
- From southbound National: no changes
To get to Hulston Cancer Center and Wheeler Heart and Vascular Center:
- From southbound National: Turn right onto the Cox South campus. Turn left at the stop sign to go through the Cox tunnel to Bradford. Drivers may also use Primrose.
No left turns onto the Cox South campus or onto Bradford Parkway from National are permitted. Remember, to get to the opposite side of National from either direction, you'll go "right and under."
