CoxHealth says it’s opening a new urgent care facility in Monett in January that aims to better serve area residents.

The 2,600 square foot facility, according to the hospital, is a resource for ailments that can’t wait for a traditional doctor visit, but aren’t severe enough for a trip to the emergency room.

“The focus of this facility is to bridge a gap between people needing same-day appointments and our physician offices,” said Darren Bass, president of Cox Monett, in a statement. “We want to be an addition to the exceptional care our primary care physicians provide.”
