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 – 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. Their impressive history and dedication to Hopkins County are evident by their past and present community involvement. We are thankful they feel the Healthcare Foundation is a worthy cause to invest their efforts in.”

COVID Testing at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinics | Urgent Care

Unfortunately, due to a shortage of COVID testing supplies, we cannot guarantee that rapid tests will be available. If rapid tests are not available, we will send out a COVID PCR test, which typically results in two days but could take up to seven if the testing volume is high. We are working diligently to obtain additional supplies and appreciate your understanding; please know that we remain dedicated to providing you with the very best care possible.

Thank you for your respect and consideration!

With a spike in COVID-19 cases in Hopkins County, we appreciate anyone who has made an appointment with a provider at one of our clinic locations kindly canceling within four hours of their scheduled time.
