COVID-19 Testing

Experiencing Symptoms?

If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, shortness of breath, cough, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, chills, muscle pain or headache, or diarrhea, please call your provider for either a face-to-face appointment or a telemedicine consultation.  If your provider determines you need to have a COVID-19 test, they will send you to the appropriate outpatient location for testing.  If you are experiencing an emergency, please present to the Emergency Room.  At this time, we are preserving our Emergency Room COVID-19 tests for those who are experiencing an emergency.  Otherwise, we would ask that you follow the steps above.  If you do not have a healthcare provider, CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic welcomes new patients.  Please call 903.885.3181 to talk to one of our associates about setting up an appointment.

3-D Mammography:  Now Scheduling

We are excited to announce the soft opening of our Ruth & Jack Gillis Women’s Center at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs.  Using our new Hologic Genius 3D Mammography with biopsy equipment purchased with funds raised by the Hopkins County Healthcare Foundation, we are now performing 3-D mammograms right here in Sulphur Springs.  There are plans to host a grand opening of the new addition very soon.  For more information, call 903.439.4325.

Don’t Delay Care:

We want to be perfectly clear – CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances remains a safe place for all to receive quality care. Go to the Emergency Department or call 9-1-1 if you are urgently ill. While COVID-19 is new, our processes and procedures in place for infection prevention and preventing the spread of illness are not.
