CoxHealth opens $5M clinic in Republic

Posted online

CoxHealth's latest "super clinic" is open for business.

Health care system spokesperson Kaitlyn McConnell said CoxHealth's clinic in Republic opened to patients Oct. 4, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony held the following day. It replaced another clinic in Republic at 820 S. Illinois Ave.

“We are proud of this new facility and what it offers our patients,” said Brock Shamel, vice president of Cox Medical Group, in the release. “The new clinic is part of our ongoing effort to meet patients in new ways where they are in the region and keep care close to home.”

The $5 million Republic center, 3203 E. Old Stone Road, is part of a $37 million clinic investment in the area by CoxHealth, according to past reporting. The health care system is building a $13 million "super clinic" at Battlefield Road and U.S. Highway 65 in Springfield, with locations in Nixa and Ozark opened in the last year.

The term super clinic refers to a facility with multiple types of care in one location. The 15,000-square-foot Republic building serves as a walk-in clinic that additionally has physical therapy, radiology and lab services, according to the release. McConnell said the clinic has 25 employees led by Katrina Flood.
