CHRISTUS Nurses Start Nurse Honor Guard

The group is voluntary; members do not have to be CHRISTUS associates but do have to be an RN or LVN. The membership is open to any active or retired (LPN or RN) in the state of Texas. To become a member of the CHRISTUS NETX Nurse Honor Guard, you may join the private Facebook page for members, and/or fill out the form at For questions or to request a tribute for a loved one, please reach out via email at [email protected].

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Recent studies have shown that colonoscopies can save lives. Due to colon cancer being highly curable (if detected early enough), it is recommended that individuals without any symptoms or known risk- such as family history receive their initial colon screening at age 45. However, if individuals are having symptoms, have personal history, or are at high risk they are recommended to screen before age 45. If you or a loved one could benefit from a preventative screening, turn to our compassionate gastroenterology team led by Dr. Umair Sohail. Talk to your primary care provider today about scheduling your screening at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital- Sulphur Springs, or call 903.885.1770.
