Fiscal Year: Oct. 1, 2016 – Sept. 30, 2017

CoxHealth is proud to offer the latest in medical technology and services to improve our community’s health status.

The population of southwest Missouri is fortunate to have award-winning health care, low unemployment and cost of living and educational opportunities at a number of higher education institutions.

Even with great innovation, there are still community needs in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. That is why as a community-owned, not-for-profit hospital system, we provide the kind of care and programs to serve the most vulnerable in our communities – the underinsured and uninsured.  CoxHealth enterprise includes hospitals in Springfield, Monett and Branson, Missouri.

Our community benefit programs are an investment in our friends and neighbors.  One of the important ways we do this is through programs like Healthy Food Pantry Collaborative and Community Paramedics.  Healthy Food Pantries is a collaborative of community partners whose goal is to make healthy food choices available to those in need.  The collaborative supports food pantries throughout the Ozarks and helps educate the community about healthy food choices. By working with our community partners, we can help ensure a healthier community.  Community Paramedics is a CoxHealth program to bring needed health care services to the members of the community in their homes, while preventing costly emergency room visits.  These types of programs are investments in our community and a product of CoxHealth being the best for those who need us.
