The Women’s Center

Cox Health Systems recognizes and responds to the unique health needs of women. For 15 years, The Women's Center has served as the leading voice for women's health in southwest Missouri. Call us for health answers, information and support as you respond to life’s challenges.

We can answer your questions...

Expecting a new member of the family?

We recognize that childbirth is a family experience. More than 3,900 babies are born each year at Cox South, so you can trust us to help you prepare for a healthy pregnancy. Our Special Delivery maternity program provides everything from physician referrals for you and your baby to classes on planning your pregnancy, prepared childbirth, siblings, parenting and grandparenting. Because breastfeeding is healthy for both mothers and babies, The Women’s Center offers inpatient and outpatient consultations with certified lactation professionals, breastfeeding classes, breast pump rental and sales, and nursing bra sales with personalized fittings. Call us for information on special events such as the annual Baby Affair and Pickles and Ice Cream Luncheon.

Are you concerned about osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a silent disease, often showing no symptoms until you break a bone. The best treatment for this disease is prevention and early detection. In our Osteoporosis Clinic, we offer simple, inexpensive bone density screenings, as well as full diagnostic bone density testing and education about osteoporosis.

Are you at risk for breast cancer?

Breast cancer is the number one cause of cancer death in women ages 20–59. Early detection of breast cancer can mean the difference between life and death. Our Women's Center Breast Care Clinic offers a full range of breast health services, including screening and diagnostic mammography, breast biopsy, breast prostheses and mastectomy bras, instruction in breast self-exam, a breast cancer support group plus annual awareness events.

Do you have questions about your health?

We offer educational programs on a wide variety of health topics throughout the year. Plus, our nurses are available by phone at 417/886-LADY to answer questions about your own health and the health of your family. The Joyce Schwandt Library, located in The Women's Center, offers more than 1,500 books and videos for checkout at no charge.
