CoxHealth is planning a $13 million "super clinic" in southeast Springfield.
The 30,000-square-foot health care center at the U.S. Highway 65 and Battlefield Road intersection is slated for completion by year's end, according to a news release. CoxHealth spokesperson Kaitlyn McConnell said J.E. Dunn Construction Group Inc. is serving as general contractor for the project designed by H Design Group LLC and Overland Park, Kansas-based BSA LifeStructures Inc.
“We believe that this facility will give even more options for care that are convenient for our patients and allow us to serve them when and how they need us," said Max Buetow, vice president of Cox Medical Group, in the release.
McConnell said the development site is at the northeast corner of the intersection, near Jack Henry & Associates Inc.'s (Nasdaq: JKHY) Springfield campus. Greene County assessor and recorder data show CoxHealth purchased roughly 17 acres at 3525 E. Battlefield Road from McLean Enterprises Inc. on Dec. 29. The note amount is not listed.
Springfield City Council last year voted to rezone the acreage to general retail. Property owner Lee McLean III of McLean Enterprises said at the time that plans were underway to sell the land to an unnamed buyer. The vote also established a conventional overlay district and prohibited convenience stores and 24-hour service stations from buying the land, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting.
CoxHealth officials have used the term "super clinic" to refer to facilities with multiple types of health care in one place. The clinic in Springfield is designed for urgent and primary care, physical therapy and on-site radiology and lab services, according to the release.
CoxHealth's most recent "super clinic" opened last month in Ozark. The $9 million center followed the the December opening of a $10 million similar clinic in Nixa. Others are underway in Monett and Republic.
