CoxHealth Cafeteria

Springfield, Missouri

Originally opened in 1985, the cafeteria at CoxHealth’s south campus was due for a fresh look to bring everything up to the health system’s high quality standards. The renovation challenged hdesigngroup to rethink the flow of cafeteria users to relieve congestion, offering a quicker in-and-out experience and enhancing efficiency for nutrition services.

Opening up existing spaces allowed for a new salad bar and soup station, more grab-and-go options, additional cashier stations, and expanded beverage and condiment stations. New finishes include floors, ceilings, lighting, stone accent walls, audio-visual improvements, bar-top seating with charging stations, modernized railings, and soft seating in lounge areas. hdesigngroup coordinated the work over six two-week phases to minimize disruption to customers, patients, and staff.
