CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs News

Sulphur Springs, March 14, 2022  CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs has ONE mission: To Extend the Health Ministry of Jesus Christ.

By Holly Ragan

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 sent 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 ( and select ‘Helping Ukraine’ in the drop-down box to donate to this effort.


Local Fitness Court – Grand Opening

CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital: Sulphur Springs is a proud supporter of the new local Outdoor Fitness Court located in Pacific Park. Due to the threat of inclement weather, we postponed this event. Please stay tuned for the new date!

Community Health Day

In partnership with CHRISTUS Health, Columbia Lodge #81 held a Community Health Day event on Saturday, March 12, 2022, from 8:00 am to noon at the HW Grays Building at Pacific Park. The event was free to all and included six physician speakers, free lab work, and a complimentary breakfast. The turnout was great for the first year, and we look forward to making this an annual event. A special thank you to Bryan Vaughn and the Columbia Lodge members for volunteering and organizing a great event.

Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation Lights of Life Gala 2022

The Lights of Life Gala is at the Civic Center on Saturday, April 2, 2022, from 6:00 pm to midnight. This year’s theme, “Under the Big Top,” reflects our desire for some fun and frivolity after a long season of hardship. The gala promises to be another dazzling evening of fine dining, dancing and bidding on unique live and silent auction items. This year’s Lights of Life Gala chairs are fourth-generation Hopkins County natives, sisters Markeda Fisher and Kayla Price Mitchell. Shannon Barker, Foundation Executive Director, shared, “I am thrilled to be working with Markeda and Kayla. When they arrived as the bearded ladies to reveal the theme, Under the Big Top, I knew we were in good hands! They keep everyone laughing and have the experience and relationships to ensure a successful event. In addition, their impressive history and dedication to Hopkins County indicate their past and present community involvement. We are thankful they feel the Healthcare Foundation is a worthy cause to invest their efforts in.”
