Hopkins County Turkey Trot
The CHRISTUS Mobile Athletic Training Room and Athletic Training staff will be onsite at the annual Hopkins County Turkey Trot this year to assist with any injuries. We will also have CHRISTUS associates that have graciously volunteered to help pass out water there as well.
The Hopkins County Turkey Trot race is on Thanksgiving morning at 8 a.m. and CHRISTUS will be set up on the square near Corner Grub House. Please come by the purple tent and say hello!
Good luck to everyone that has entered the race!
The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation in partnership with CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital Sulphur Springs held a reception last Tuesday, November 15, to celebrate the opening of Annie’s Room at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Medical Plaza. This special room was made possible through a generous gift from Leesa and Brian Toliver in honor of their granddaughter, Annie.
Annie’s parents, Jonathan and Sally, learned while they were pregnant with Annie, that the then unborn baby had a congenital heart defect. This necessitated Sally to make frequent trips out of town to visit a team of specialists for checkups.
Through the 2022 Lights of Life Gala, the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation was able to purchase a 4D Video Sonogram machine to be used by patients in this same situation to benefit from telemedicine and to mitigate the stress, hardship and expense of frequent out of town trips for doctors’ appointments. This allows a Sulphur Springs doctor to coordinate care with the CHRISTUS Maternal – Fetal Medicine Program, located in Tyler, all while keeping the pregnant mom from having to travel.
When the doctors from the CHRISTUS Maternal – Fetal Medicine Program need to discuss a diagnosis, treatment or follow-up with parents, a room is needed for the doctor’s tele visit. This room needs a large monitor, comfortable seating, and the ability for the room to be private so parents can converse with the doctors without interruption. The Tolivers, realizing what a benefit this would be for Hopkins County parents, graciously offered to fund the room and name it in tribute to young Annie. We are thankful for this generous gift to our community.
