CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs News

March 22, 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.

Events

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. Please join us for the grand opening/ribbon cutting on Friday, March 25, at 10:30 am.

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. The evidence is their impressive history and dedication to Hopkins County by their past and present community involvement.

We are thankful they feel the Healthcare Foundation is a worthy cause to invest their efforts in.”

For more information and sponsorship opportunities, please call the Foundation office at 903-438-4799.
