CoxHealth announced the start of construction of a 10,500 square foot facility focusing on pediatric specialities at 1011 East Montclair in Springfield.
The facility, when complete, will be kid-friendly in design and decor, and will house a mix of CoxHealth’s over 20 pediatric specialities.
“We hope children never require specialist care, but we want to be able to serve them if the need arises,” Karen Kramer, vice president and Chief Nursing Officer at CoxHealth, said in a statement. “Many resources will be available in one place at the clinic, which will offer even more services as we continually increase the specialties available in this region.”
The list of specialities at the new clinic will include developmental medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology, sleep medicine, general surgery, urology, and hematology and oncology.
“We are very excited to be part of this new chapter for children’s care in the Ozarks,” Tim Siebert, executive director of CMN Hospitals at CoxHealth, said in a statement. “Helping improve kids’ lives is fundamentally what we do every day – but being able to help announce this clinic is an especially great moment. We would love to hear from anyone who is interested in being part of this campaign to make a difference for local children.”
Children’s Miracle Network has been heading up fundraising for the facility and has raised $1.3 million to date.
