Getting flu shot ‘strongly encouraged’



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!

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: wash your hands with soap and water, or use hand sanitizer frequently. Cover your coughs and sneezes; into your elbow is best. If you have the flu, stay home from work or school. For additional precautions, ask your healthcare provider.

In addition, our Gastroenterology office is moving! This Friday, Dr. Mena Milad, Chimdi Mfebe, FNP, and their staff will be relocating to 107 Medical Circle, Sulphur Springs, Texas 75482. To reach their office, please call 903.885.1770.


We have access to highly trained specialist close to home with Access Physicians MultiSpecialty Clinic at 113 Airport Road, Suite 200. Offering specialties such as Endocrinology for diabetes and thyroid disease management, Neurology for stroke patients, Pulmonology and Sleep Medicine for disorders of the respiratory system and a Psychiatrist for behavioral and mental health concerns, their highly trained physicians are available via telemedicine Monday-Thursday. Please call 903-919-5034 to schedule an appointment today, and stay close to home for the care you need.
