Flu vaccine available for the kids



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!


Have your children had their annual flu shot yet? It is never too late. Swing by the CHRISTUS Trinity Pediatric Clinic Medical Building 3 without an appointment on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. and get the kiddos their vaccine. All it takes is a minute to give them extra protection from the flu this season. For questions, call us at 903.885-5439.


We are very excited to welcome our newest member of the Access Physicians Hospitalist Team, Dr. Robert Thurston. Dr. Thurston was born and raised in the small farming community of Twin Falls, Idaho. Following his undergraduate education, he worked at the University of Arizona as a research scientist for eight years. Following his research, he completed medical school at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona. He recently finished his residency in internal medicine at East Liverpool City Hospital. He will be here seven days on and seven days off in rotation with our other team members.


The hospital is hosting a “Festival of Trees” Silent Auction, where businesses or individuals may donate beautifully decorated 4-foot Christmas trees that will be on display in our hospital lobby through Dec. 5. We invite you to come and see the entries, and bid on your favorite tree! All funds raised from this event will go to the 2019-20 Lights of Life Campaign.
