Celebrating the Cox South expansion

Bio-Med's Barry Kise shared this image of a rainbow over the new Cox South expansion.

More than 1,000 community members joined us on Saturday for the Cox South Expansion Community Celebration! Our thanks to everyone who came out and to all the CoxHealth employees and volunteers who made the celebration possible!

See CEO Steve Edwards' personal reflection on what the expansion means for our future in this cover story from the June CoxHealth Connection.

Be watching for a special commemorative CoxHealth Connection about the Cox South expansion in the coming weeks!

CoxHealth and community leaders gathered to cut the ribbon on the new facility.
Community members enjoyed guided tours of patient floors in the Dee Ann White Women's and Children's Hospital and the Jared Neuroscience Center.
Guests heard a presentation on our neurological services from Stroke Center Director Dr. Richard Jung at the Jared Neuroscience Center.


In Pediatrics, the custom "bubble walls" were a hit with kids and adults alike.
CEO Steve Edwards and other CoxHealth leaders spent the day meeting with guests who came to tour the expansion.
Outside, families enjoyed the Kids Safety Fair, which featured live music, a Cardiac Kids demonstration and Springfield's Batman.
Saturday's live music included a special CoxHealth volunteer performance of "We Believe in Miracles," led by Dr. Peter Situ of Radiation Oncology.
