Cox South hosts Leadership Springfield class

Members of Leadership Springfield’s current class made a stop at Cox South on Thursday as part of a daylong session focusing on Health and Medical Services. Leadership Springfield is a group of community leaders from a wide variety of organizations who participate in monthly educational programs highlighting different segments of the local economy.

During the visit, participants heard from CEO Steve Edwards, who spoke on the state of health care and hosted a question-and-answer session. The group also got an up-close look at the Da Vinci surgical robot and heard from Dr. Thomas Shultz, medical director for robotics.

Justin Coyan, business analyst at CoxHealth and a member of the current Leadership Springfield class, served on the planning committee for the Health and Medical Services day. This is the 29th year that Leadership Springfield has worked to educate leaders about our community, and we were honored to have hosted the group for a portion of their day.
