During an emergency
, CoxHealth is ready because our goal is always the same: to provide second chances, and new beginnings.
|The Level I difference|
CoxHealth recently was awarded Level I Trauma Center status by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
What does access to a Level I Trauma Center mean for you? It means we have everything in place to cover the entire spectrum of care for seriously injured patients. That includes a trauma surgeon on site 24 hours a day; round-the-clock access to more than 20 specialties; a dedicated trauma clinic for follow-up care and more. Learn what makes the difference when you have an emergency.
|A little boy saved|
Trace, 5, was working on his family's farm when a horse got spooked and stepped on him. He was taken to Cox Monett, where doctors told Trace's father that he had internal bleeding and the situation was grim. He was flown to Cox South Emergency and Trauma Center, where the trauma team rushed him into surgery to repair the damage.
