Across the country critical access hospitals (25 beds or less) like Cox Monett are closing. In fact two shut their doors in Missouri in 2018. It has become harder and harder for health systems to support rural healthcare, putting over 89 hospitals nationwide in financial jeopardy. In 2018 however, CoxHealth announced that not only did it value rural health and access to care, but it would invest in Cox Monett, building a new hospital starting in 2019. In January of this year, with the support of the Cox Monett Community Advisory Board, the decision was made to launch a fundraising campaign to assist the hospital in being the best for those it will serve.
The Momentum Campaign gives the region the chance to show it’s pride in their local community hospital and the great value it brings in attracting people, businesses and opportunity to Monett and the surrounding area as well as the highest quality care. All donations are tax deductible and a variety of donor opportunities exist for recognition in supporting the campaign.

To give to the CoxHealth Foundation means you want to offer compassion and understanding while at the same time supporting hope and possibly- cure. We call it Philanthropy for Life because gifts to health care improve, extend and enhance people’s lives.
Life can often hand us cards called cancer and heart disease, Parkinson’s and stroke. Accidents can change a life. Fate takes all control away. When this is you and you need a helping hand, the CoxHealth Foundation is a resource to help put your life back into your control.
You don’t have to be a doctor or nurse to impact community health. Everyone has the ability to be a care giver. The CoxHealth Foundation has many ways for you to get involved in making a difference.
One of life’s great gifts is good health. Unfortunately, until we lose it, too many of us take it for granted. At CoxHealth we never take for granted that you depend on us to provide the highest level of quality care. Our dedicated staff of physicians, nurses and other medical specialists work to ensure that you and your family have every opportunity for good health. To support our efforts, join our donor family at the CoxHealth Foundation. Please call us at 417-269-7150 for for more information.
