Fiscal Year: Oct. 1, 2017 – Sept. 30, 2018
CoxHealth is proud to offer the latest in medical technology and services to improve our community’s health status. Even with great innovation, community needs in southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas still exist. As a community-owned, not-for-profit hospital system, CoxHealth provides the kind of care and programs that serve the most vulnerable in our communities – the underinsured and uninsured. The CoxHealth system includes hospitals, clinics, home health products and other health care services in Springfield, Monett, Branson, Lamar and numerous towns throughout the southwest Missouri region.
Our community benefit programs, such as Community Paramedics and numerous education classes, are an investment in our family, friends and neighbors. Community Paramedics is a CoxHealth program to bring needed health care services to the members of the community in their homes. This helps prevent costly emergency room visits. Our educational classes include information to prepare new fathers, heart health and child safety, among many other important topics. These types of programs and education are the results of CoxHealth’s mission to improve the health of the communities we serve through quality health care, education and research.
