CoxHealth to build super clinics in Nixa and Ozark
CoxHealth will soon launch a new model of care in the Ozarks with construction of two new super clinics in Nixa and Ozark. Once complete, the super clinics – 30,000-square-foot, standalone facilities – will ultimately offer primary care, urgent care, dedicated pediatric offices, and physical therapy all in one place. In Ozark, the new facility will be located at US-65 and CC, and in Nixa, on US-160 just north of MO-14. It is expected that ground will be broken on the projects mid-December, and they will open in the fall of 2020.
