CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs has ONE mission: To Extend the Healing Ministry of Jesus Christ.
One of our Pharmacists, Pejman Pirmoradi, recently traveled to Ethiopia for business and was honored to meet with the Ethiopian Minister of Women and Social Affairs, Dr. Ergoge Tesfaye. She told him about her goal of donating one million books to the Abrehot Library in the capital city. While Ethiopia is a wealthy country, it has much poverty. Pejman has pledged to donate 100,000 books to this effort. We want the community to help collect books for Pejman to send to Ethiopia. The books can be used or new, for any age, and we are collecting books at the hospital. You may reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.
If you want to donate monetarily, we have set up a fund through the Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation. You can write a check and earmark it for “Ethiopian library.” Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Specialty Clinics: Wound Care
Diabetic wounds, vascular wounds, traumatic wounds, burns, or any other chronic non-healing wound can benefit from the specialized care provided by Dr. Scott McDearmont right here at home in Sulphur Springs.
Dr. McDearmont is a board-certified surgeon with 25 years of experience and has recently earned the designation of Certified Wound Specialist Physician from the American Board of Wound Management. The doctor is the only wound care provider in our service area with this certification.
One modality that we have available at our comprehensive wound care clinic is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy gives several types of wounds a better chance to heal when other more traditional modalities are unsuccessful. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy functions to deliver a higher concentration of oxygen to tissues. The patient is in a chamber under 2x atmospheric pressure breathing 100% oxygen. This therapy also helps activate substances and proteins in the blood to heal wounds. Diabetic wounds, chronic infections in the bone, and failed amputation flaps are common approved indications for hyperbaric oxygen treatment.
Dr. McDearmont and the Wound Care team at CHRISTUS are accepting new patients at 115 Airport Road in Sulphur Springs. Ask your health care provider or home health nurse to provide a referral or call 903-438-4670 for an appointment.
