CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs
CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs has ONE mission: To Extend the Healing Ministry of Jesus Christ.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Breast cancer affects almost 1-in-8 women in the United States and is a curable disease if detected early. However, we believe
even one is too many at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs. Scheduling your annual mammogram and speaking to your primary care physician regarding what steps you can take for preventative care establishes a legacy of optimal breast health and wellness.
We emphasize the importance of breast exams and mammograms for women and men with a family history of breast cancer. Our compassionate medical associates help detect breast abnormalities to ensure you receive the necessary resources, diagnostics, treatments, and procedures. The Ruth and Jack Gillis Women’s Center inside the CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital in Sulphur Springs is a state-of-the-art imaging center that includes the newest 3-D Mammography technology. We welcome you to schedule your mammogram here today.
Schedule an appointment by speaking with your physician or call 903.438.4325.
New DAISY Award Recipient
There are many incredible nurses nominated for a DAISY award by patients and their families for receiving excellent care. The DAISY Award, however, is presented quarterly to only ONE nomination, chosen by a panel of direct care nurses from each of our seven sites. In addition, they blind all nominations, so no one knows the nominations until after choosing the winner. This quarter the recipient is Hayley Maddux, RN, of our Med/Surg Department. We are proud of her dedication to quality care!
