Inspiring Hope through Healing

National Hospital Week is May 9-15, and is an opportunity to highlight our hospitals, health systems, and health care workers and the innovative ways they are supporting the needs of their community members, especially during the pandemic.

National Nurses Week is May 6-12; Nurses are superheroes, answering the call ever day to care for their community and patients. 

TO ALL THOSE WORKING IN AMERICA’S HOSPITALS AND HEALTH SYSTEMS, THANK YOU!

A special “Thank You” to Kyle Lemarr, Coordinator of Sports Medicine and the Sports Medicine team, plus the all of the providers and volunteers who helped organize and perform sports physicals for 433 student athletes from Rains County, Winnsboro, Como Pickton, and Sulphur Springs schools.  Additionally, thank you to the Hopkins County Civic Center for providing the space.  We look forward to providing this service to our partner school in the future!

To safely regulate access to patient care areas within our hospital, visitor screening stations are placed at the entrance of our facilities.

We will no longer restrict the number of visitors per patient, however, we strongly encourage to limit visitors to ONE (1) essential support person and for all other visitors – continue utilizing virtual communication through mobile devices to monitor your loved ones in our care.

Hospital Services

Expecting a baby?  We’re expecting you!  Our Birthing Center provides a wonderfully progressive environment for the delivery of your new addition.  Our department includes eight Labor-Delivery Recovery-Postpartum rooms, where you may experience the entire birthing experience in one spacious, home-like suite, as well as four post-partum rooms, and a recovery room.  Babies born in the Women’s Pavilion benefit from the extended care our upgraded Level II nursery can provide.  We even want to bless your new baby with their very own CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital onesie, to mark their memorable birth at our hospital.  We also offer a special meal for new moms, and have just purchased new labor beds and infant warmers.
