From the CoxHealth side, the goal of the super clinics is to create a “one stop shop,” says Trina Hargis, System Director of Urgent Care at CoxHealth. “The super clinics have physical therapy, urgent care, primary care services, COVID testing, flu testing, urine samples, pregnancy testing, X-ray services and more. If you need to see someone more specialized, we can refer you to the right clinic and save you time.” To date, CoxHealth has opened four super clinics including locations in Nixa, Republic, East Battlefield and Ozark. A fifth location is under construction on the corner of National Avenue and Sunshine Street in Springfield.
To make the clinics more appealing for patients, the interior color scheme is brighter. The waiting rooms are comfier and designed so patients sit back-to-back instead of side-by-side (thank you COVID). But there are also hidden amenities you can thank Grooms for.
For example, side tables in the clinic waiting rooms now feature charging stations. Grooms also worked with CoxHealth to provide easy access chairs that are a bit wider and a bit taller to accommodate patients who need a little help getting to their feet. But what Trina and Craig Kelley, Director of Clinics, really like is the furniture’s durability and cleanability.
