CoxHealth Donates Former Monett Hospital to Church Organization

CoxHealth announced Thursday they will be giving their former hospital building in Monett to an area church.

Cox donated the building to Life360 Church’s Community Services outreach.

“We have great affection for our former hospital and are grateful for the many lives it was able to serve throughout its history,” Darren Bass, president of Cox Monett Hospital, said in a statement. “This transition is something we are very excited about, especially since it means the facility will continue to serve our friends and neighbors, and make a difference here in Monett.”

Life360 is expected to complete the transfer of ownership in August. The new programs that will be offered to the community by the church include mental health services; foster care; crisis pregnancy services; nutrition; youth and childcare, including an on-site preschool. Other services will be added as the facility is developed for Community Services.

“We are excited to partner with the Monett community to see this facility into its next chapter,” Ted Cederblom, CEO of Life360 Community Services, said. “We look forward to the many partnerships that will benefit our neighbors in Monett.” 

The former Cox Monett hospital was built in 1953 and operated until January 2021 when CoxHealth opened the new hospital facility.
