EM Docs Names CoxHealth's Steve Edwards One Of Top Five Hospital Administrators


The president and CEO of CoxHealth has been named one of five top hospital administrators during the COVID-19 pandemic by a Facebook group of physicians.  EM Docs comprises more than 22,000 emergency physicians.

They included CoxHealth’s Steve Edwards in their list of the top five for donating his own money to help support staff who might contract COVID-19.  They also cited the rapid opening of an open-ward, 50-bed ICU at Cox and securing a $700,000 donation from a local business to cover the cost of its construction.  And they pointed to Governor Mike Parson’s visit to see the new ward among other things.
