Cox Health South Tower Addition
Location: Springfield, Missouri
Owner: Cox Health South
This addition added a ten-story, 350,000-square-foot patient-care tower, attached to the northwest portion of the hospital. In terms of actual inpatient beds, this is the first material project on this campus since 1985, when the first patient wards were built. The tower houses a women's and children's hospital and a neuroscience hospital, and includes space for future expansion. The additional 124 patient beds in the tower allows Cox South to transition its semiprivate rooms to private rooms.
