CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs News

Sulphur Springs, Texas, April 5, 2022  CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs has ONE mission: To Extend the Healing Ministry of Jesus Christ.

Helping Ukraine

In light of the news of the attacks on Ukraine, we would like to extend an opportunity to aid the community of Kharkiv, a city in northeast Ukraine. One of the hospital associates has a spouse from this city, and their family is still there. As a result, the hospital has been able to send some medical supplies. In addition, and thanks to the generosity of many others, we have been able to set up a fund through our Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation to raise money and send it directly to aid this city. Go to Online Giving (christushealth.org) and select ‘Helping Ukraine’ in the drop-down box to donate to this effort.
