Sulphur Springs, Texas, August 26, 2021 – CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital–Sulphur Springs has taken the opportunity to acquire a Medical Mobile Unit (MMU) from the Regional Advisory Council (RAC) that they didn’t utilize. We have several preparedness plans in place, and the inclusion of the MMU has always been a part of those plans. When increased patient volume or staffing warrant its use, the MMU may be employed as a triage center to help us streamline the Emergency Room intake process.
Once evaluated, we direct emergent patients into the ER. Those with less acute and non-emergent symptoms go to the appropriate location for further treatment, such as respiratory evaluation or the Urgent Care clinic.
The MMU is not currently required, and CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital–Sulphur Springs is proactive to ensure we continue providing this community with high-quality care.
