SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — CoxHealth is dedicating an entire floor of Cox South to COVID-19 patients.
The floor, located in the new tower, will be rebuilt into ward-style areas for COVID-19 patients that are on ventilators.
Instead of individual rooms, the patients will be in large, open spaces.
The hospital says this change will help conserve PPE.
The new floor is set to open by April 9.
