CoxHealth now offers high-risk prenatal care via telemedicine
Mothers facing high-risk pregnancies in rural areas of the Ozarks now have a new way to receive care closer to home. A telemedicine option, connecting CoxHealth’s rural hospitals to its Regional Perinatal Center in Springfield, allows patients to be seen virtually for appointments. For some patients, this may save dozens of trips to Springfield over the course of a pregnancy.

Voice of the patient
From a message to CoxHealth’s Facebook page: “Hello! My mother had the best care I have ever seen! She had a craniotomy and I honestly thought she was going to die. Thank you for saving her life and thank you for your outstanding and compassionate care!! The nurses on the 8th floor…are absolutely amazing and gave my mother hope! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
I hope everyone has a safe and restful holiday,
