Sulphur Springs, TX – Healthcare and community members gathered on Thursday, October 12, to celebrate the unveiling of the new CT Scanner at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs. The event marks the culmination of the two-year project, which required a specially lined and renovated room to accommodate the new equipment.
CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital–Sulphur Springs and the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation purchased the scanner.
They marked the day with comments from Foundation Chair Maleta Reynolds and CMF-SS Chief Nursing Officer Anitha Sanderson. Fr. Justin Wylie, manager of pastoral care, which also involved Andy Navarro, vice president of mission integration at CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances, and Sister Rose Marikudi, member of the Sisters of the Mother of Mount Carmel, provided a blessing of the equipment During Reynold’s comments, she mentioned the benefit the community receives due to the Hopkins County Hospital District, CMF-SS, and the Foundation working together to provide the best local healthcare for citizens.
Sanderson shared the need for the new CT Scanner, the second one used at CMF-SS. She said they had estimated before purchasing that they would use the new CT scanner at least seven times daily. Currently, it is averaging nine times per day. And the need is expected to continue to increase.
