Prime donates $700,000 for hospital COVID-19 unit


Prime Inc. founder and President Robert Low and his wife, Lawana, donated $700,000 on behalf of the company towards a new COVID-19 unit at Cox South Hospital in Springfield, Missouri. The hospital says the donation covers all construction costs associated with the project.

“During this chaotic time, it’s important to come together as a community. So, when CoxHealth leadership told us about this need, we were glad to contribute,” Robert Low said. “We are all in this together. We will persevere and defeat this virus. We thank our Prime associates – in-house and drivers – who are certainly doing their part to keep essential goods moving throughout the nation. We also want to thank our front-line health care workers, and let them know: We support you.”

The COVID-19 unit at the hospital was completed this month and includes a 51-bed, ward-style Intensive Care Ventilator Unit.
