Cox Medical Center Branson (Branson, MO) [HMO141] has begun construction on a $30.8M expansion and renovation project. Plans call for a three-floor, 42,000-square foot addition to the hospital and renovation of 18,000-square feet of existing space. Once complete, the ED will take up 31,000-square feet, and will include 32 private exam and treatment rooms, and eight observation beds. The project will also see the expansion of the coronary care unit. The third floor of the addition will remain as shelled in space to allow for future expansion.
