St. John’s Regional Medical Center, Joplin, Mo., now serves as the sole provider of health care and health information for on-site events at the region’s largest shopping mall. St. John’s Health Connection is located inside the main entrance of the Northpark Mall in Joplin. “We are excited about the new facility and look forward to serving the community with this extension of St. John’s services,” said Gary Rowe, St. John’s president and chief executive officer. The facility promotes wellness and encourages people to become more educated about health care through screenings and seminars.
St. John’s Health Connection also promotes a mall walker program called
St. John’s Hearts & Soles, which currently has more than 150 members.
