Area flu cases see increase past 2 weeks



CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs is excited about all of the ways we continue to expand our services to the local community. We want to make sure you know everything we offer — right here, close to home! Please note: We have a seen a rapid increase in the number of positive flu tests just within the last two weeks; therefore, if you have not already had your family vaccinated against the flu this year, we strongly encourage you to do so. Other precautions that help reduce the spread of flu germs are:

• Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer frequently,

• Cover your coughs and sneezes – into your elbow is best; and

• If you have the flu, stay home from work or school. For additional precautions, ask your healthcare provider. To schedule an appointment, call us at 903-885-3181.


CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Primary Care and Pediatrics will be closing at noon on Christmas Eve and closed on Christmas day as well as New Year’s Day. To reach THE office, call 903-885-3181 and plan accordingly.


CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs and CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! It is an honor and a privilege to serve in this community. We look forward to 2020 and continuing our mission of “extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ.”
