Freeman Neosho Hospital Business After Hours Cancelled

March 13, 2020

Prompted by Cancellation of Neosho Business Expo

Joplin, Mo – Regretfully, Freeman Hospital Neosho announces the postponement of the Business After Hours event connected to the Neosho Business Expo. The reception was planned for tonight from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

Today the Neosho Chamber of Commerce announced it is postponing its Business Expo, saying while it was confident in the precautions it had in place for health safety, multiple businesses withdrew from the event based on corporate restrictions on employees participating in large public events due to health concerns with the current coronavirus.

A future date for both events will be announced as soon as it is confirmed, but a summer 2020 date is possible.
