CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs Provides the Following Medical Services:
Today, many surgical procedures which once required hospitalization are performed as “day surgeries”. The patient pre-admits the day before surgery, then return to the hospital and are discharged the same afternoon. Not only is this more economical, but it also allows the patient to recover in the comfort of their own home. Procedures commonly performed are: Cataract removal, tonsillectomy, hernia repair, breast biopsy, orthopedic, podiatry, and urological. The Day Surgery department handles all pre-admits for inpatient surgeries, and pre-admission on OB patients.
The Emergency Department at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital, a designated Level IV Trauma Center, is staffed 24 hours a day with Registered Nurses and physicians specializing in emergency care. State-of-the-art equipment, laboratory, and x-ray services enable us to provide emergency care of all levels, within our capabilities, to an average of 1700 patients per month. Patients requiring immediate specialized care are stabilized and transferred to a tertiary facility.
