CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs has ONE mission: To Extend the Healing Ministry of Jesus Christ.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

By Jennifer Heitman, Senior Market Development, CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs, [email protected]

Sulphur Springs, Texas, October 3, 2022 Breast cancer affects almost 1 in 8 women in the United States and is a curable disease if detected early enough. At CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital-Sulphur Springs, we believe even one is too many. Scheduling your annual mammogram and speaking to your primary care physician regarding what steps you can take for preventative care establishes a legacy of optimal breast health and wellness.

We emphasize the importance of breast exams and mammograms for women and even men, who have a family history of breast cancer. Our compassionate medical associates help detect breast abnormalities to ensure you receive the necessary resources, diagnostics, treatments, and procedures.

The Ruth & Jack Gillis Women’s Center inside of the CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital in Sulphur Springs is a state-of-the-art imaging center that includes the newest 3-D Mammography technology. We welcome you to schedule your mammogram here today.

Schedule an appointment by speaking with your physician, or call 903.438.4325.

New DAISY Award Recipient

Hayley Maddux, RN, DAISY Award for extraordinary nurses recipient.

Many incredible nurses are nominated for a DAISY award by patients and their families for receiving excellent care. The DAISY Award, however, is presented quarterly to only ONE nomination, as chosen by a panel of direct care nurses from each of our seven sites. All nominations are blinded, so no one knows who has been nominated until after the winner is chosen.

This quarter the recipient is Hayley Maddux, RN, of our Medical/Surgical Department. We are proud of her dedication to quality care!
