MONETT, Mo. (KY3) - CoxHealth rings in the new year with a new hospital later set to open in Monett later this month.

The new CoxHealth Monett Hospital, located at 1000 E. Highway 60, will open at 6 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 22.

Crews began construction on the $42 million facility in April 2019. The 70,000-square-foot hospital will replace the current facility that opened in 1953.

“Our current hospital has served the community well over these six decades, but we believe it’s time to grow and a new facility is part of that,” says Darren Bass, president of Cox Monett Hospital in a 2018 interview with KY3. “We’re very excited for this project, and believe it will raise the standard of care we’re able to offer patients in this region.”

CoxHealth shared a video Friday with a closer look from outside the facility:
