Cox Meyer HealthplexSpringfield, Missouri

The Cox Meyer Fitness and Rehabilitation Complex combines the resources of a fitness center and an outpatient rehabilitation clinic into a one of a kind facility. Adjoining an existing rehabilitation hospital, the complex contains a 27,000-square-foot Rehabilitation Clinic and a 75,000-square-foot Fitness Center with physical and visual connections between the facilities. This linkage introduces physical therapy patients to an atmosphere that reinforces the importance of physical activity.

The design recalls an athletic fieldhouse with a large, barrel-vaulted roof made of wood structural beams. The Fitness Center includes a gymnasium, natatorium, racquetball courts, cardio and strength training areas. Other club amenities include a deli, children’s gym and locker rooms with whirlpool spas, steam rooms and saunas. The Rehabilitation Center contains a physical therapy gym, neuro gym, pediatric gym, occupational therapy areas and a multi-use clinic.
