Gina Cox

Gina, who has worked for Boone Hospital and BJC HealthCare for 12 years, assists with maintaining the hospital’s general ledger, reconciling bank statements, coordinating maintenance agreements, negotiating contracts, and works with grant related purchases.

No doubt, there’s a lot of computer and paper work involved in her job. But the job is most rewarding when she’s working with people across the hospital to resolve problems.

“I really love working at the detail level and figuring out why things look off,” she said. “I like the investigative part.”

Gina is a Boone Baby and had all four of her children here. Those experiences helped convince her to apply at Boone when the opportunity arose.

“I was familiar with the Boone atmosphere through being here and experiencing the type of care that everyone gave,” she said. “I was very excited to have the chance to join the team and be a part of that.”

As a working mother, she also appreciates the hospital’s focus on work-life balance. Having time away from work gives her an opportunity to camp and spend time outdoors with her daughter, three sons and husband Larry.

Gina grew up in Keytesville and graduated from Central Methodist University.

She said her employee of the month honor truly reflects everyone she serves alongside.

“I really felt like I am accepting it on behalf of our department,” she said. “Everyone in our department really works as a team. That’s what makes it easy to be a successful employee — having a great team of people working together.”
