Hospital earns stroke center certification



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!


Our hospital has recently earned our Primary Stroke Center Certification by The Joint Commission. The achievement of this certification signifies to the public that the quality care our hospital provides is effectively managed to meet the specialized needs of stroke patients, and our stroke care process includes the elements that are critical to long-term success in improving outcomes.


We are collaborating with a couple of restaurants in town to bring you the local favorites right here in our hospital cafeteria. On Monday, Nov. 8, Slaughter’s BBQ Oasis will be here to serve chopped beef sandwiches for $5 each. We invite you to come dine with us, even if you are just visiting the campus and not a patient. Our doors are always open!


We are very excited to welcome two new Family Nurse Practitioners to CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic: Lydia Amartey and Nikki Collins. They are both now accepting new patients at 105 Medical Circle. To schedule, please call 903-885-3181.


Did you know we can take care of almost all of your medical specialty needs right here in Sulphur Springs? Just one of many is our Urologist Dr. Loren Ost, and his Nurse Practitioner, Leah Irving. Dr. Ost and Leah see patients who have concerns of the urinary system in both male and females, as well as the reproductive organs of the male. They are at 113 Airport Road, Suite 300, and may be reached at 903-885-1770.
