CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital is now identified by the hospital logo on the front wall of the building. The emblem welcomes those driving Jim Masters Boulevard, the entrance to the hospital off Airport Road.
It replaces the Memorial Hospital logo that once graced the main building. The hospital name was changed when Hopkins County Memorial Hospital District sold 51% of ownership the hospital to CHRISTUS Health. The sale was finalized July 11, 2016. The logo change took place Wednesday, September 13, 2017.
Signs denoting the emergency room entrance had been changed almost immediately following the sale.
