Thursday evening, April 23 we invite everyone in our community who would like to pray for our hospital, associates, patients and country to park on our campus. The prayer time will be from 7-7:20 p.m. You may park in any of our public parking lots, taking care not to block our emergency vehicles or Emergency Department entrances.
In adhering to social distancing, we ask that while you pray to please remain in your vehicle and turn on your flashers to show your support and indicate that you are having prayer time.
HEROES WORK HERE
For the safety and health of the community and our ministry, CHRISTUS Health is screening all associates and visitors to our hospitals to help lessen the risk of infectious disease transmission among our patients, associates, and guests.
• One entrance to hospital through Emergency Department 24/7,
• One visitor per patient,
• Visitors must be between the ages of 16 and 65 years old,
• All visitors are screened at the door, including a temperature taken,
• All associates are screened at each shift, including a temperature taken,
• Visiting hours are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. (subject to change), and
• All hospital visitors are required to wear a mask. Visitors should bring their own mask; homemade cloth masks are acceptable.
VIRTUAL MEDICINE & CHATBOT
At CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic, our goal is keeping our patients healthy and well. By expanding our services to offer video and telephone visits, we provide patients a convenient alternative to in-office visits for simple illnesses, including a cough or cold, to more complicated conditions like diabetes or heart disease. Go online to ChristusVirtual Medicine.org and schedule your appointment. You may also call 903-606-DOCS to schedule.
In an effort to help respond to questions and concerns regarding COVID-19, we have added the COVID Health Chatbot on our websites to help with triage and ease concerns. The dedicated tool offers self-screening information for the virus, which will in turn provide direction on what next steps are needed based on the information given.
The Chatbot is available 24/7, and the clinical pathways that guide our Chatbot were edited and verified by CHRISTUS clinical experts and will direct patients to the best care locally.
We want to be perfectly clear: CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Health System remains a safe place for all to receive quality care. While COVID-19 is new, our processes and procedures in place for infection prevention and preventing the spread of illness are not. From physicians and nurses, quality and safety experts to those responsible for ordering supplies and keeping the hospital clean—all our associates are involved in making sure we provide a safe environment for our patients. Every single day.
